I doubt they could have obtained the original DNA just by following the
superficial (outside looks) characteristics. Can the new breed ("species")
interbreed with _Bos bovis_?
By the way, it is interesting that the area south of Zagreb (capitol of
Croatia) still bares name after _Bos primigenius_ ( Tur in Croatian):
Turopolje (Tur's fields)
