Wild bison: What return of Europe's largest land mammal means for Kent countryside


Three bison have taken up residence in Kent, an older female from Scotland’s Highland wildlife park who will serve as the leader, and two younger females from Cork’s Fota wildlife park.

A young bull will join them in late August, and together they will help build a self-sustaining British bison population.

They have a five-hectare fenced area to explore in Blean Woods, which will eventually grow to 50 and then 200 hectares after the bull has arrived.

A host of other animals such as Iron Age pigs, Exmoor ponies and Longhorn cattle will follow later.
