Our data fail to meet this assumption because we cannot assume that the infection status of a wild canid is independent of others in the population.
The phylogenetic tree showed that most Tas2r genes of the raccoon dog were clustered together with canid species.
The majority of winter forays were by 3 adult males who may have been seeking extra-pair copulations with neighboring estrous females, as reported for other canid species (Roemer et al.
It is worth noting that just one other canid (gray wolf, Canis lupus) is listed on CITES Appendix I, which protects several other notoriously threatened species, including giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca), red panda (Ailurus fulgens), elephants (Elephas maximus and Loxodonta africana), gorillas (Gorilla spp.), chimpanzees (Pan spp.), and Tasmanian wolf (Thylacinus cynocephalus), which is possibly extinct (CITES, 2012).

Our findings, that frequency of coyote melanism increases with canopy cover, parallels findings for multiple species (e.g., Kiltie, 1989; Majerus and Mundy, 2003; Wauters et al., 2004), including other North American canids (e.g., Jolicoeur, 1958; Dekker, 1998; Gipson et al., 2002; Anderson et al., 2009).
Without the advantages of canid partners, humans might not have spread so quickly, nor extinguished so many competitors, meaning that human settlement in the succeeding Holocene era, considered to have begun 11,700 years ago, might have been both slower and more sporadic.
Surveys of coyotes and other canid populations may be warranted in the WMDs of origin to establish the source of infection.
Lanszki et al., (2006) reported that in Hungary, the canid species consumed more small mammals and diet overlap among the canid species was high (mean, 73%) and varied with the decreasing availability and consumption of small mammals.
