Man’s best friend has been living in North America for over 9,000 years! Scientists recently discovered a small piece of domesticated dog’s skull in a cave in Texas and it’s about 9,400 years old. Early North Americans kept dogs not only for companionship or to help protect them, but they also probably ate dogs during ceremonies or during famines. This skull fragment was found in a piece of fossilized human poop.
