Nice little story are they native or were they an introduced species ?.
As far as I can tell they are native. More info about them here -
The Chillingham herd is believed to be related to prehistoric auroch oxen, which once grazed across northern Europe.
The white longhorns have remained isolated and untouched next to Chillingham Castle in Northumberland since they were first penned into their park in 1260.

If it wasn't for the enclosed park they would probably no longer be around. Maybe a distant relative but not pure like they are now. Seems cruel not to give veterinarian care but in the wild they wouldn't get it.
