Bison Cull

Up to 40 European bison living in the Bia這wieski National Park (BPN) in eastern Poland may be killed because they are unsuitable for breeding. The animals are on a hit list now that the park has received ministerial approval for a cull.

"Sick, disabled and aggressive animals, as well as those causing damage to farms, will be first in the firing line," says the park's deputy director Aleksander Bo豚ot.

The fact that up to 40 bison have been selected for culling does not mean that precisely this many will be shot this year. Fewer than the allowable 30 were shot last year.

The annual tally of bison living in the wild is being held at the same time. This will take until the end of January to complete. Bia這wieski National Park has the largest herd in the country with around 450 bison, according to last year's count.
