What a fascinating essay and hypothesis! I am a retired Phusical Anthropologist and believe that modern Homo sapiens groups may have exterminated Neandertals with the help of dogs.
Columbus wrote that "one dog was worth 10 soldiers when fighting the Indians" and later revised this number to 50 men (Coren 2002:74). At the Battle of Vega Real in 1495, Bartolome de las Casas observed that 20 dogs each killed at least 100 Indians within 1 hour (p. 75)! Did the same fate befall the Neandertals?
