“This indicates a dog in the very early stages of domestication, says evolutionary biologist Dr Susan Crockford, one of the authors on the study.
“The wolves were not deliberately domesticated, the process of making a wolf into a dog was a natural process,” explained Dr Crockford of Pacific Identifications, Canada. “
Crockford is a crackpot. If this was a “natural process” it should be in process now wherever sloppy people live next to wolves, or there should have been records of it ocurring in the past.
It never happened in historical times for the simple fact that civilized people stopped domesticating wolves because they had already evolved out dogs from captured wolf cubs.
