Wild Animals in Poland


    IN the Eastern Carpathians, the Quarterly Information Bulletin (Krakow, 1936) states, there still exist about three hundred bears, of which four were killed in 1935. The elk herds now number more than a thousand individuals, their welfare having been aided by the disappearance of an epidemic from which the herds suffered in the previous year, and from a decision to stop the cutting of timber in the elk territories, with the result that the herds, formerly compelled to emigrate, were able to winter in their established districts.
