Usually in many Vegan restaurants I see images of happy farm cows and made me wonder what was the original wild animal. Now I read they have been back breeding to return the animal to the wilds.

 

The earliest cows were mighty beasts that stood almost as tall as elephants, with lean, powerful frames and fearsome horns that would make a hunter think twice.

For thousands of years the aurochs were the largest land mammals in Europe, until the rise of human civilization decimated their numbers, and the last of the species died in Poland in 1627 -- one of the first recorded cases of extinction.
