Wild “supercow” to be de-extincted in Europe.
I’ve never heard the term “de-extinction” before, you?

Description of the supercow from the linked article:

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.

I’ll try a t-bone from one of these beasts!
