Which name Shahama or Bialystok?
Mel Brooks references:
Bialowieska Forest (the one with the buffalo
it's the European bison (żubr), not buffalo, and be careful, my friend's teacher who once went to Puszcza Białowieska thought she was seeing a dummy, started approaching it to find it out - to her horror - that it was real :)
those beasts use to stand/lie without moving for long time like they were dead
