The Bison – Acrobat

19 June 2015

Bison love to rub. Any objects with rough surface can serve as “bison brushes”. The free ranging bison also use rugged structures, like tree trunks. Rubbing against objects helps bison to shed the winter fur and get rid of ticks. To rub the whole body sometimes requires impressing gimnastic skills.

WATCH A BISON RUBBING

An unusual visit

30 May 2015

Wild Farm meets with increasing popularity among visitors. In recent days a likeable winged guest decided to come to us.  After a stroll on the parking lot and observation of the enclosure area from the strategic spot on the roof the stork flew away for a next journey. You are welcome to come again!

Spring in Wild Farm

22 May 2015

Although it is already late May, we cannot avoid the impression, that our bisons are still experiencing the spring “euphoria”. Today, they received a suprise in the form of birch branches put in a feeder and on the run. Knocking over, throwing, chewing and frolicking: folly mood could not end for a long time. Unfortunately, they were not eager to pose :)

“Pyra” resettled

28 April 2015

After last events a bison called Pyra had to imediately leave the previous place of stay. On 27.04.2015 according to the decision of Regional Directorate for Environmental Protection in Szczecin there were carried out immobilisation and transportation of the animal to another place – enclosure of Benek Association in Szewce near Poznań. In spite of difficult land conditions action was a success. Pyra, although in advanced age, went through immobilisation quite well. We hope that he would be satisfied in his new home and live long until the calm old age.

Po ostatnich wydarzeniach żubr imieniem “Pyra” musiał niezwłocznie opuścić miejsce swojego dotychczasowego bytowania. W dniu 27.04.2015 na podstawie decyzji wydanej przez RDOŚ Szczecin zostały przeprowadzone immobilizacja i transport zwierzęcia do innego miejsca- zagrody Stowarzyszenia Benek w Szewcach pod Poznaniem. Akcja, mimo trudnego terenu, przebiegła sprawnie. Pyra, choć jest w podeszłym wieku, całkiem dobrze zniósł immobilizację. Mamy nadzieję, że w nowym domu zazna wszystkich wygód i doczeka spokojnej starości.
