About 35 tonnes of food of animal origin (dead livestock and soft tissues) are brought to this feed site annually. In addition to this feeding site, a brown bear feeding station has been set up to cover plant food-cereals. About 750 kg of cereals, usual corn, are brought to the brown bear feeder during the year.

During your visit to the Kasan feeding facility, and if you are lucky, there is a chance to see the brown bear Milos. The brown bear Milos, from 2017, wears a GPS collar with him and informs us daily about his movement. In addition to moving in this way, we also see when Milos is hungry when he sleeps a little, and when he sleeps in the winter, we also see that he has not caused any of the hosts damage to their properties (livestock, hives, orchards, etc.) and we see the territory he uses for your life. Bear Milos is the RECORDER for the number of data he sent from the necklace. That number is about 16,000 data, which is a record that came from all marked bears in the territory of the Republic of Serbia.
