The moving story of Bysia

17 February 2015

The mother of Bysia called “Single-horn” was already an aged cow with enormous experience when she gave birth to the title-cow.  In late autumn when Bysia was already quite big half-year cow, Single-horn started being ill. The calf stayed close to her all the time. Unfortunately, Single-horn died in January. Bewildered Bysia had been returning to the dead mother for several days until she started going away in search for other bisons. At that time a local herd was already in a place of winter feeding, which was not known by Bysia. Destiny of orphaned calves is insecure and on areas with wolf occurence a lone calf is an easy prey. She was saved by Western wind , which brought smell of a small group of bulls feeding on fields at Długie Lake. It turned out that there was her father called The First in the encountered group. Bysia luckily found company and protection. Today, her security is provided by three wonderful bulls, see it for yourself. :)

Last week we freed a wolf from a snare. We were afraid whether an animal exhausted in a trap would make out in the wild. Telemetry collar sent first data just on Monday – it showed that the wolf reposed for two days at the Kielpino Lake and the he went to a military training field. In first days he moved at a rate of several hundreds meters a day, yet with the time passing distances traversed were getting longer. Yesterday, the wolf walked through whole area of the Drawsko Forest Inspectorate and today it is already around Swieciechowo spot in Drawno municipality. We know that it is staying with a pack.

The wolf has gone through the most difficult period after its release and probably the most difficult period in its life. Telemetry collar installed on it should work and transmit data for about a year. We are eagerly looking forward to next data packages from the wolf.

A rescued wolf

27 January 2015

On last Sunday we got anonymous information about a wolf trapped in a snare. Sadly, animals are still exposed to threat from poachers. Thanks to sensibility of an informer we found the wolf and released from a loop which was tightened around its underbelly. After cutting a line we installed telemetry collar on it so as to monitor our young wolf.

According to our rule of giving a name to released animals we are waiting for your proposals :D
