When Egypt's ancient Dog Catacombs were fully excavated for the first time in 2010, scientists found about 8 million animal mummies. They're now examining the 2,500-year-old remains, and new research shows that most of the mummies are dogs—many just hours old when mummified. They were likely the product of ancient puppy mills, bred to provide dogs to Egyptians who believed that the spirit of a mummified dog could transport prayers into the afterlife, where they were heard by the canine-headed god Anubis.
