3. Wild White or Park Cattle

3. Wild White or Park Cattle

Wild white or park cattle are kept in several places in Great Britain. They are fine white cattle with black or red points and date back to the Middle Ages, when the great noblemen enclosed areas of land for sporting purposes. In these parks were deer, wild boars and wild bulls. Whether the cattle were really wild or gone wild is not certain. They may have been the latter. Anyhow the breed still survives, for example the Chillingham herd in the great park at Chillingham in Northumberland, and the Chartley Cattle at Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire.
