Chillingham Wild Cattle


A herd of wild white horned cattle has been at Chillingham since the Middle Ages in the care of the family of the Earls of Tankerville. In 1971 Lord Tankerville bequeathed them to the Chillingham Wild Cattle Association (formed in 1939).[1] The CWCA, a registered charity, own Chillingham Park, where the aminmals live.
