The UK magazine Another Escape came to see the bisons and write an article about the wildlife and the wilderness of the area and also all over Romania. Rachel and Gody – the two people from the magazine, Georg – the guide, Dancun and me – interns, were up to the mountains to track the bisons after packing sandwiches in the Research Station. On the way, we found lots of Yellow Bellied Toads. It was very nice to see this species which is nearly exiting in the northern Europe. We saw some fresh tracks and at some point Dancun and Gerog saw something moving in the bushes. It was a bison ! Another one was behind a tree as well. We decided to wait for the bisons to come towards us. We sat for 1 hour and 3 bisons come out of the bushes. Gody took lots of pictures while the rest of the group was enjoying seeing bisons behaving very wildly. Very nice afternoon with the sun out. We all enjoyed seeing 9 bisons in the wild roaming freely…
