The man who lives with wolves by Shaun Ellis( Book )
8 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What would compel a man to place himself in constant danger in order to become a member of a wolf pack' To eat with them, putting his head into a carcass alongside the wolves' gnashing teeth' To play, hunt, and spar with them, suffering bruises and bites' To learn their language so his howl is indistinguishable from theirs' To give up a normal life of relationships and family so that he can devote himself completely to the protection of these wild animals' In The Man Who Lives with Wolves, Shaun Ellis reveals how his life irrevocably changed the first time he set eyes on a wolf. In exhilarating prose, he takes us from his upbringing in the wilds of Norfolk, England, to his survival training with British Army Special Forces to the Nez Perce Indian lands in Idaho, where he first ran with a wolf pack for nearly two years. Offering an extraordinary look into the lives of these threatened, misunderstood creatures, Ellis shares how he ate raw kill'and little else; washed rarely, and only in plain water; learned to bury his face into the carcasses of prey'and, when necessary, to defend his share of the kill; communicated with the pack by his howls and body language, which over time became seemingly identical to theirs; and observed from this unique vantage point how wolves give birth to and raise their young, and enforce order among the pack. After years of living in the wild, Shaun Ellis was barely able to recognize the feral face that stared back at him from the mirror. And in The Man Who Lives with Wolves, we discover the life of a rare and fascinating man who abandoned civilization but never lost touch with his humanity. From the Hardcover edition

Can dogs smell cancer? ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This documentary investigates the possibility that dogs might be able to smell cancer. When Gill Lacey was 19-years-old her dalmation Trudy became obsessed with a mole she had on her leg. After visiting her GP it was removed and it turned out to be a malignant melanoma. Despite opposition a small cluster of researchers are convinced that a dog's sensitive nose might really be capable of detecting cancerous odours from urine samples from men with prostate cancer and skin cancer lesions. World champion dog-trainer Duane Pickell has trained dogs to find bombs and by 1993 his dog George was proficient at finding the scent of cancer in urine samples; soon after other dogs were proven to have the same success in more controlled tests. However, can people trust their diagnosis to a dog? Cancer Research UK remain sceptical and believe that even if it was proven that cancers do have an odour, it would need to be measured by a machine rather than an animal. Finally, a study is taking place in the US, under Michael McCulloch at Pine Street, in which a dog is able to detect a lung cancer patient from their breath sample, even a 5 year old breath sample
