Last two of seven escaped bison return to their enclosure in Tábor Zoo

The Tábor Zoo has caught the last two of seven bison, which escaped from their enclosure after a heavy storm damaged the fence a week ago. All of the animals are unhurt. Five of the bison were located fairly soon and driven back to their enclosure, but two remained hidden in a nearby forest where they spent a week in the wild. Police monitored the area and nearby roads where the animals could appear unexpectedly.

The European bison is an endangered species. It is estimated that there are approximately 7,500 of them left in the world, half of them in the wild. The Tábor Zoo has been intensively involved in the breeding of European bison for several years.
