First taste of freedom for 'rewilded' bison in Romania

An European bison is released from a transport box in the Tarcu mountains, 20 km from Armenis village, Romania, on June 12, 2015An excited crowd gathered in southwestern Romania to watch more than a dozen woolly brown bison stroll off lorries into the picturesque Tarcu mountains — nearly 200 years after they became extinct in the region. “I grew up hearing legends about bison that lived here and today we finally see them there,” said 60-year-old teacher Elena Dragomir, watching the event near the village of Armenis with a group of her students. Wildlife experts brought a group of 14 bison from zoos across Europe last week to a 140-hectare (345-acre) Romanian reserve, where they will reacclimatise to natural life before their release into the wilderness in a few months time.
