Not to crazy about this due to the fact I really know that people will want to kill these hybrids...Thus, the article. People are so STOOPID! Leave these creatures alone and let them live like they were meant to live. Clean up old animals and give them a break! This needless killing is SICK, then people go out and mix them. NO BRAIN PERIOD! Just adds fuel to the fire.

wolf-dog hybrids should (a) be classified as exotic pets and regulated as such, and (b) anyone wishing to obtain one should be required to attend some form of instruction as to their special needs and characteristics.

particularly since the goal is generally to have as much wolf blood in the animals as possible, this is essentially a temed wild animal with all of its normal instincts intact, and CANNOT be treated like a "normal" dog. not only does this create potential problems in the hybrids' immediate environment, but injures efforts to protect wild wolves by spotlighting (all too often) WHY they are considered dangerous animals.

wolves ARE dangerous animals - they are one of nature's most efficient predators. they are no more suitable as pets for the average family than a tiger. it takes a special person with knowledge of wolves to maintain them, for the animals' sake as well as the owners'.

I am against this. Humans experimenting with this will only cause more trouble.

of course. lots of books have been written about them. and we know it's the best of the best because wolves are one of the kindest animals if they were not shy
