some were discovered at the EJ III/IV (ca. 2500-2200 BC) site called Tell Rad Shaqrah, on Khabur River in NE Syria excavated by the Polish Mission led by Piotr Bielinski of the Warsaw University. Unfortunately, the paleozoological report on the discovery has not been published yet (as well as the final report on the work terminated in 1995) but I can provide contact with the person who has identified the bones.
