Still Waters Posted February 13, 2013 #1 Share Posted February 13, 2013 (IP: Staff) · Perhaps barking is another by-product of domestication. Unlike dogs, wolves rarely bark. Barks make up as little as 3 percent of wolf vocalizations. Meanwhile, the experimental foxes in Russia [that have been bred to be docile] bark when they see people, while the control foxes do not. Frequent barking when aroused is probably another consequence of selecting against aggression. However, more recent research indicates that there might be more to barking than we first thought. http://www.scientifi...-when-they-bark 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
