Native Americans slaughtered most of them to extinction when they initially arrived, and found an entire continent full of animals that had never learned to be afraid of humans (see also, what happened to the dodo).

It came back to bite them in the ass later, when they reached a point of cultural development where they would settle down and potentially domesticate animals, because by then they lacked sufficient species to work with. It's why something like 5/6ths of all animals domesticated by humans all originated in either Asia, Africa, or Europe.

What's interesting is the horse originated in North America and the natives killed them all off 10,000 years ago.
