Now, while I don't particularly condone the unfair demonisation of this impressive creature, the hateful, rainbow-edged perversion that has led to this flesh-ripping marvel being reduced to a tail-wagging Nature-Spirit-Companion-Guide must cease.
This is a creature that forms packs to hunt and tear the legs out from the weakest of the cuddly creatures (the young) by locking its 2 inch canines like a vice around their ankles, while the other pack members tear out the throat.
No, on their own, they might not attack a stray human, but in a pack, you're toast, lentilheads.
They revel in carrion. Bring back the fangs, and slick the fur with blood!
