May calves

31 May 2010

In the last ten days of May, two baby bison were born: The cow named Karwia left the herd around 20 May. She gave birth to a cow, in a secluded place known only to herself, and returned to the herd on 28 May. The second female, Kamica, left the herd to give birth on 26 May, and went to same site which she used the previous year, when she birthed a baby bull. This year, she produced a lovely daughter. It can be assumed that, as in the previous year, she will rejoin her herd in two to three weeks time. Below, the photos show both bison mothers – on the left, Karwia; on the right, Kamica.
