I am currently trying to compile a list of animal burials (i.e., species
and sites) in the greater Southwest.  Although many reports, theses and
dissertations mention intact burials of macaws, turkeys, raptors, dogs and
bears, to my knowledge, no synthesis or thorough analysis of the material
in toto has resulted.  I am seeking citations of animal burials, i.e.
intact, articulated interments in a prepared burial context from southern
Colorado, southern Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Chihuahua and Sonora for
inclusion in a comprehensive list to be presented at the SAAs. 

Any leads or citations would be greatly appreciated!
