The wisent, or European wood bison, is the largest and heaviest land mammal in Europe, and the last of the European bison. It is about 330 cm long, nearly two meters tall, and may reach up to one metric ton in weight. In 1921, due to the anarchy of the World War I and the years that followed, poachers almost eliminated the entire wisent population. As of December 31, 1997, specialists managed to preserve 1,096 wisents in zoos, and 1,829 in the wild.
