How did humans manage to domesticate wolves? They're massive niggers.

all it takes in one retarded wolf that decides humans aren't dangerous and gets close enough to interact with them
those guys were literal autist, no sense of danger
they just got lucky we saw use for them
>>
>>2298875
we didn't domesticate wolves. we domesticated a common ancestor that wolves share with dogs.

>hunter gatherers dropping food scraps everywhere they go
>wolves eventually realize that eating human waste is a lot easier than hunting
>start following humans around
>humans probably kill aggressive wolves and decide the rest of them are pretty useful for protection
So on and so on.

Op is a fag

Humans were probably more like wolfs and niggers back then.

I think it's two things that worked out together, human brains growing capable of empathy and wolf brains seeking out easier life for survival.
>muh proud wolves and easier life??
Yea, three words, extra shitty weather. Ice Ages in general: "Ice core data shows that the last 400,000 years have consisted of short interglacials (10,000 to 30,000 years) about as warm as the present alternated with much longer (70,000 to 90,000 years) glacials substantially colder than present."
Last Ice Age: 110,000 to 12,000 years ago.
Dog domestication: "estimates ranging from 15,000 to more than 100,000 years ago".
>wow look, it's cold and hungry out there, but? they have the use besides meat and fur?
These stories are easy to imagine. You caught and butchered that big thing and decided to wait until small ones became bigger. Eventually there was that one that was protective towards humans and it was too obviously useful even for a brain of those people. You keep seeing some of them following your camps, as a hunter that is able to caught some of them alive you are maybe able to weaponize them too.
>animal cub empathy, animal empathy in general
The moment old humans became capable of feeling protective towards each others children? All primitive religions were basically "be thankful towards animal you ate". Now this is the material of studies and not for idle googling stories, I have nothing to contribute.

And the fact that they are opportunistic carnivores. Omnivore can do fine without socialization and pack behavior, obligatory carnivore has nothing to offer to poor primitive men. These old protodogs had just perfect stomachs to survive along side humans.
