The issues I previously wrote about reminded me of a news story that a friend sent to me recently.She sent me a couple newspaper articles regarding how Moscow’s stray dogs have learned to ride the subway in order to survive. The dogs ride the subway into the city each day to “work” and return each evening. They know which trains to catch and which stops will get them back to their original starting point.I’m attaching two links to this remarkable story:
http://rev.ms/SubwayDogs2She said that the dogs have evolved into 4 types:
One type is truly feral and can’t live with humans because it’s dangerous;
Another is truly domestic and can’t survive without humans;
Then there are two types in the middle that have learned how to co-exist with humans.
Her take home message? “Dogs have evolved….animal control hasn’t.”
I think I’ll put this message on my business card, next to a picture of a dinosaur.
