Aurochs were so cool

The Aurochs was a really impressive wild cattle that roamed the plains of Europe hundreds of years ago. It was many times larger than regular cattle -- standing two metres tall and weighing 1,000kg. Such a "grand" animal. Imagine just walking through some plains or something and seeing them grazing regally in the distance. Unfortunately for everyone involved, the aurochs is now extinct -- the last ones died in the year 1627.

Here is a totally awesome picture of an Aurochs fighting a pack of wolves:
