After some time, there will me more food available for native vultures in Spain. - I taught on natural deaths of these animals (old, injured, stilbirths).
This area has not a vulture population (yet)
Thank you. I would love to provide domestic animal parts, to local vultures populaton here, as I believe that lack of food is major factor for vulture population decline. So If I ever open a zoo, I will keep goats, and I will send them to slaughterhouse, and their parts will be fed to local vultures (if I get permit for doing such thing).
Anyway the first European bison "reintroduction" in Spain began in Palencia -in North Spain- .After continues in Burgos near to Atapuerca Palaeolithic site, and just now, 10 days ago the new animals arrived to the location in Valencia province.
Bisons: poison and beheaded
Do you know the new? Somebody has tried to poison the Valdeserrillas' bisons and even have beheaded the alpha male
There some bisons missing too and the police has opened a research..
Here some links to the new in Spanish:
Hallan decapitado al macho alfa de los bisontes de la Reserva de Valdeserrillas | Comunidad Valenciana Home | EL MUNDO
Alpha male of Spanish bison herd beheaded in suspected poison attack
Two (from 3) "missing" bison were founded alive, but seems they were drugged.
The Alpha male were found beheaded.
Absolute scum to be honest nothing else
This latest development is disgusting.
Going back to the original quoted article, they already have water buffalo? How are these native to Spain? Are they not from Asia (and most likely domestic animals)? Also where will they get "wild horses" since those are extinct? (Except of course for Mongolian wild horse but surely those would not be placed in Spain).
the water buffalo are a "re-wilding" replacement for the European water buffalo Bubalus murrensis which is now extinct. They probably had similar habits to the extant water buffalo, and it is thought that the presence of the domestic species will be of benefit to the wetlands. They have been introduced to several reserves I think.
Przewalski's horses have already been introduced to some re-wilding sites in Europe, as have the imitation tarpan and feral domestic horses. I'm not sure which Valdeserrillas will be using.
