Wild Bison to be reintroduced to the UK

It has been announced today that wild bison will be reintroduced to the British countryside for the first time in between 6000-15000 years (no one seems to really know apparently). Per the BBC news:

“The £1m project, led by Kent Wildlife Trust and the Wildwood Trust, is aimed at helping to manage Blean Woods near Canterbury.

A wild herd of European bison, the continent’s largest land mammal, will be in their new home by spring 2022.

The breed is the closest living relative to ancient steppe bison, which once roamed Britain.”

The above editorial illustration was done in about an hour. Nothing fancy – just thought the idea of a bison on the tube was amusing. Enjoy!
