I have two issues with this article:
1. How did they date the dung? And can you seriously, accurately date something that old?
2. They do not definative proof that the hair is human. They only state that it is similar to humans and they can't pull any DNA from the hair.
I don't think they have proved anything.

Seeings as there are people in this world who believe the world is less than 10 000 years old, I would love to know how they are going to explain this one.

I love the "photographic proof" they post under the Dinos lived with Humans section. A grainy B&W photo of a supposed dino print in the mud. It's not even centered in the shot. If I found a fresh dino print I would take more than one shot of it, and it would have been documented a bit more thoroughly.

The major problems with a lot of these findings is that they are dated long before this universe existed, and that is entirely impossible.
Every dating method that exists uses false assumptions that lead to entirely erroneous dates. One of the things you have to take into account, for any dating method to be accurate, is the parent/daughter ratio. How can we accurately know the parent/daughter ratio when the object being tested was originally formed? The answer is that we can't, unless we know when it was created... and we almost never do. We also assume that that there has been no loss or addition of the parent or daughter component throughout it's history. This is a terrible assumption. How can we know it to be true, unless we were able to monitor it throughout it's existence.
So if scientists are going to begin from a false assumption, then it follows that their findings will also be false.
