In a bog at Vig, Odsherred, the skeleton of a prehistoric aurochs was found in 1905 during turf digging. The enormous animal weighed almost 1000 kg, and its shoulder height was almost 2 metres. It was the largest and most dangerous animal in the forest. This aurochs was hunted and injured by the Stone Age hunters about 10,000 years ago, whereafter it fled into the lake and drowned.
