After the dog, it was probably the goat (Capra hircus) which was tamed by man. Apparently, this happened in several phases :
First, wild goats were controlled in an extensive area between East Anatolia and the Zagros Mountains. Then around 10,500 to 10,000, goats were domesticated in only a small area the North-West of Iran. They quickly spread to the adjacent regions and further all over the world. All goats on Earth today descend from this first tamed population.
