Some doubtful conclusions appearing from the Gautier paper concerning mammal bones of the Stone Age forager site Dudka in the N.E. Poland is discussed. The choice of particularly an island for yearly, seasonal encampment is argued as economically profitable - for fishing and hazelnut gathering, but ungulates hunting carried on the mainland. Traces of keeping semi-domesticated pigs on the island are searching mainly in palaeobotanical data. The controversial method for distinguishing domesticated mammals from their wild relatives is discussed. Some individual bones (of bison, horse, dog, and pig) are re-examining, because their correct identifications are important for the history of these species in the Polish Plain - time of occurrences, status in hunter-gatherer society including eventual local domestication.
