Traditional rural cattle of the Danube Delta (see below) are virtually identical to their abandoned relatives, and this breed (if it's a breed at al) also looks quite similar to yugoslavian Busha cattle and Rhodopian shorthorns. These are small cattle, smaller than Heck cattle. I suspect that these southerneastern-european cattle breeds all have a similar history and are mixes of typical podolian steppe-type cattle with central European breeds like Braunvieh and others, but I don't know for sure. These cattle surely can be a useful start for a breeding-back project in that region, some individuals do look interesting (for example, note the very elongated snout of the bull down below).
