Wild bison are to be reintroduced to Britain after 15,000 years as part of a “groundbreaking” rewilding conservation scheme….
European bison and American buffalo are different species. They also act very differently. The European is rather like the shy retiring cousin that stays in the forest – the forest elephant, not the plains one.
So it’s not quite as magnificent this reintroduction.
To make things really exciting I’m waiting for someone to get to work on the DNA of the aurochs – that would make the woods fun again.
