The article, “Spatial Assessment of Wolf-Dog Hybridization in a Single Breeding Period”, it talks about how studies on wolf-dog hybrids is becoming larger and larger. Saying how it is hard to do large sample data collecting due to the wide range of the packs.

Because dogs and wolves have such similar characteristics, it is sometimes hard to tell the difference between a wolf, a dog, and a hybrid.

                Many things can cause someone to shake, quiver, have muscle spasms… too much caffeine, nerves, low blood sugar, but the thing that seems to always cross my mind is Huntington’s disease.  The classic and most well-known sign of Huntington’s disease is Chorea.  Chorea is abnormal, involuntary movements seen in patients at onset of 30 to 40 years of age.  This symptom is a telltale sign, but may also be miss diagnosing patients.
