Tourist handbook

There are more than 750 European bison living in Bia這wie瘸 Forest. Approximately 450 of European bison live in the Polish part of Bia這wie瘸 Forest. While walking through the tourist trails one has a chance to come across these glorious animals. It is worth knowing that:
 - European bison, in spite of their bulk are fast (up to 40 km/h) and agile (jumping over the obstacles approximately 2 m
   high);
 - European bison, if not provoked, shall walk away peacefully;
 - On approaching European bison, visitors shall keep the distance of 50m, or more;
 - mothers with their calves within the period of calving (between the end of May and June) and single males
   are particularly dangerous.

How to behave when you approach the European bison?
 - having spotted the signs of European bison irritation (nervous tail movement, hoof pawing, rolling etc.) leave the
   place, as soon as possible, remaining calm;
 - if you drive a vehicle – slowly stop the vehicle, do not leave the vehicle, do not turn the engine off; you can open
   windows, but do not open the doors, the noise might frighten the European bison;
 - if you ride a bike - stop, the best idea is to stand in the close trunk of a big tree, in order to be less visible;
 - if you walk – do not try to follow the European bison, stop in a place where you are less visible for a bison, do not
   move quickly.

Do not enter the places where European bison feed in winter, with the exclusion of places where tourists access is permitted (European bison mainstays „Kosy Most”, „Czo這”, „Babia Góra”).
