From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Urus \U"rus\, n. [L.; of Teutonic origin. See Aurochs.]
     (Zool.)
     A very large, powerful, and savage extinct bovine animal
     ({Bos urus or Bos primigenius) anciently abundant in
     Europe. It appears to have still existed in the time of
     Julius Caesar. It had very large horns, and was hardly
     capable of domestication. Called also, ur, ure, and
     tur.
     [1913 Webster]
