In mid-October, another European bison was shot while hunting in the Drawsko military training area near Pomierzyn. Most likely the same day on the same hunt, a second bison was killed by bullets. The dead animal lay 400 meters away. It was found a day later. Two adult females from the same herd were killed by bullets.
