People have always felt the need of petting animals and hand them food. In case of wild animals it is usually not possible in the Zoo-s and in safari parks. In Bőszénfa some deer stags and hinds were raised and fed by our staff to be the visitors’ tame friends for the duration of the visit. The oldest and kindest inhabitants of the petting zoo, Pötyi and Borcsa aged 6 and 2 are extremely friendly and insistent hinds. Many times they join the group at the gate and follow us until the end of the tour. The spotted calfs of our two other hinds - the 4 years old Jázmin and Nelli - are playing very close to the visitors. Our young stags, Jocó and Bandi are also really tame (except in the ruting season in September) and they are not disturbed by visitors stroking their velvet antler. Next to the conventionally coloured (spotted) fallow deer some special, white and black animals can also be admired closely. A tame wild boar swine herd lives in a separated garden. Gerzson, the huge boar was found in streaky age in the area. The wild boar –grown up by feeding-bottle – has an own family now, consisting of two wild pig sows (also raised by the staff) and three piglets. Gerzson did not become ungrateful to the people who raised him, even though he is now the head of a family.
Every season brings something interesting to see in the wild animal petting zoo: the casting of antlers in February, the shedding hair in early spring, the new-born calfs and streaky piglets in late spring, the stiping of the velvet antlers, the ruting season in September and the ruting season of the fallow deer in October.
