Bison Paddock of Pašiliai

 

This is the one of the most visited and one of the most impressive place in region of Panevėžys, where you can see the largest European wild animals - Lithuanian aurochs. They are included in the Red Book. Many times ago, it was believed that these animals are extinct, but their population has been restored.  

Aurochs were widespread throughout Europe until the 16th century, unfortunately because of development of agricultural, growing number of people and intesified hunting these animals began to decline rapidly. However, thanks to the nature lovers, that restored the bisons population freeing them from the zoo bars.

Because of trying to restore the bisons population there was founded Pašiliai auroch farm. The aim of farm is to save bisons and breed them. Currently there are about 50 bisons in Lithuania, some of them are in the farm, others run free in the wild. During 35 years of operation, 140 calves were born in Pašiliai bison paddock, more tan half of them were born in freedom.

In  2005, Pašiliai bison paddock was transferred from Directorate of Krekenava Regional Park to Panevėžys State Forest Enterprise. A lot of tourists from Lithuania and other countries come to see these animals with their own eyes. Tourists can spend here all day, see the views of the park, hear many interesting stories about the animals that are included in the Red Book.
