Child Anthropologist Accepted by Pug Tribe
A young anthropologist named Jackson has been living among a New Jersey tribe of pugs since early 2011 in order to document their complex social interactions.
"It’s really the disguise — an oversized pug face T-shirt — that has endeared him to the family group," says Dr. Marc Henning, a colleague familiar with Jackson’s research. "They have truly accepted him as one of their own — eating together, sleeping in the same huts. To my knowledge, no one has been able to study this remote group so intimately."
Jackson is set to publish his first paper in the journal Pug Science this August, but has no intention of returning to civilization.
"He’ll likely remain embedded with the tribe for a few more years," says Dr. Henning. "The opportunity to collect more data here is too important."
