Remains: One of eight million dogs archaeologists believe are buried in a labyrinth of sacred tunnels under the Egyptian desert
* Many of the animals were offered to the gods when they were just hours old

A labyrinth of sacred tunnels packed with the mummified remains of millions of dogs has been excavated under the Egyptian desert.

The catacombs are estimated to contain the remains up to eight million dogs, many of which would have been offered to the gods when they were just hours old.

Others would have been treated as living representatives of the dog or jackal-headed god Anubis and would have lived out their lives in the nearby temple before being preserved and laid to rest in the network of tunnels. (Full Article)


What a find. Eight million dogs. So much for the Pagan groups that so often revere the pantheon of the ancient Egyptians, imagining they were all warm and sweetheart types of god's and goddesses.

They can not possibly have counted them all.

Why kill puppies - seriously ?!
Wouldn't an adult healthy dog make a better sacrifice.
Screw the Egyptian gods - I'm going home.

Atheism is a religion like OFF is a TV channel !!!

"It is thought that a small tunnel was built to remove animal mummies which were then likely ground up and sold as fertiliser."
How do they guess these things?

And how long were the egyptians thought to be doing this for?
And if many were 'ground up' then would there really be eight million mummified dogs there?

This confirms my suspicion that Michael Vick was the reincarnation of an asshole from ancient times.
