Holey cow! Evidence of Stone Age veterinary ‘surgery’

Sharing is caring!

  1. A hole in the skull of a Stone Age cow was likely made by humans about 5,000 years ago, probably by a primitive veterinarian or trainee surgeon, scientists said Thursday.

    Humans give cows a place to go. People eat more cows than anything and I don”t see cows going extinct. Animals need a place to go. Only about 4.5% of the land in the U.S. is in a preserve. There are only 300 zoos. If they added 100 zoos and expanded all zoos to 25,000 acres that would be an extra 10 million acres to the 80 million that”s preserved. That is still not even 5% of the 2 billion acres acres (1.9 billion in the lower 48 states) of land in the U.S. With only 5% of the land there could never be more than 5% of the animals that were alive 200 years ago. One STD or one desiese or one drought or one forest fire causes extinctions today. Expand zoos to at least 25,000 acres and increase preserves
