Did you know that wolves are the largest members of the dog family. The 1963 Never Cry Wolf book by Farley Mowat is about Mowat doing a study on the relationship between wolves and caribou in Churchill, Canada. But then Mowat gets too attached to the wolves and studies them instead of the relationship between wolves and caribou. But then soon realizes that the eskimos are causing the caribou numbers to go down. The three most persuasive appeals in this book are Pathos, Personification and Logos.
Introducing The Predator Canis Lupus, commonly knowns as the Gray Wolf, is a profound animal within the animal kingdom that has been around for millions of years. The gray wolf has a range of sizes that vary due to food source and the sex of the wolf. They can range from 80-100 pounds when fully grown and anywhere from 60 inches to 78 inches long. This long, muscular animal is a predator, but not one who runs alone usually, but with others of its kind in a pack, and is one who is known for being a very territorial animal, with little fear of anyone or anything. This information can acquired by reading, “Mammalian Species, Canis Lupus” by David L Mech.
Wolves are considered to be one of the most intelligent animals on the earth. They have 30% more brain capacity than all dogs. Wolves aren’t at all what they seem in movies like “The Grey.” In “The Grey” wolves hunt and chase humans similar to the shark in the movie “Jaws.” It’s sheer ignorance. Quite the opposite happens in real life, they are usually running from us. Wolves purposely avoid us, but we really don’t know if it’s out of fear or respect.
Wolves are an extremely common favorite animal for many children and adults. Maybe it is due to their sense of mystery, but also the familiarity they have.

They have their own social structure.

It is said to hiss and screech when alarmed, as well as to leave a sulfuric stench behind. This second variety is also bipedal and has coarse fur. The third form is a strange breed of wild dog that is hairless and has a pronounced spinal ridge. In addition, it has prominent eye sockets, teeth, and claws, but is otherwise a typical canine.
As the title of this article suggests these animals are wild. Sure, some may be less wild than others, but they are still far from being domesticated. These animals can also carry diseases that can cause humans to become sick. Sure some of these wild animals can be very sweet, but even your domesticated dog will bite you if you step on his tail. What will happen to you if you stepped of the tail of your pet wolf?
“Over 937 cities in the US have BSL legislation in place.” Most of the reason pit bulls bite is because they are terrified and are treated very poorly. You can find pit bulls chained up starving left for dead. No one to love them and that leaves them no choice to do good. I like pit bulls because they have such a great personality and are very protective guard dogs. When I was twelve my family owned 2 pit bulls.

"Boo was about six-and-a-half feet tall, judging from his tracks; he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch, that 's why his hands were bloodstained -- if you ate an animal raw, you could never wash the blood off. There was a long jagged scar that ran across his face; what teeth he had were yellow and rotten, his eyes popped, and he drooled most of the time,” said Jem Finch. (Lee 13) That is not fair to him to have that name placed on him without any true facts behind it. Boo Radley has been misjudged by others because he never comes out of his house and so little was known about him. The rumours of ghosts stories the children have heard, increase their fear of Boo Radley.
Role of raptors in a ecosystem is the control the population of rodents, snakes and other birds as well.
