Heck Cows

You’re probably thinking, “Cows?” But these aren’t just any cows—they’re a particular species bio-engineered by German zoologists Heinz and Lutz Heck who were aiming to recreate a extinct wild ox breed (known as aurochs) that were a staple of the region’s mythology.

They managed to create an aggressive and uniquely shaped species that came to be known as the Heck cow, and became a feature of Nazi pride and propaganda. These cows still roam freely around Bavaria and could cause some serious pain to someone foolish enough to annoy them.
