Bison

In the middle of April we finally managed to bring bison from Prioksko-Terrasny reserve near Moscow to the Pleistocene Park. Route was more complicated then we originally thought and took longer. But all the animals quickly recovered after the trip and feel fine in the Park.

Both bison and musk ox are doing great job in transforming the vegetation. Original vegetation within the fenced ares was old tall willow shrubs. At the moment it is hard to find shrubs taller then 1 meter and animals "play" buy breaking big shrubs they encounter. On the pictures can be seen a shrub with aт inch diameter broken.
