Blame it on the moon

You’re walking down a dark lane, a cold wind howling at your back, and the silhouettes of gnarled tree branches just visible against the night sky.

Suddenly the clouds clear, and a brilliant full moon bursts forth. You hear a rustling behind you… a snarling, a snuffling… even growling? A misshapen, furry hunched figured glides through the trees behind you, following your scent.

You nervously look around - surely it’s only your old dog Rex? Werewolves don’t exist, right?

Well according to a new scientific study, you could be right on both accounts. If you dog or cat is acting strangely all of a sudden, it may be due to the full moon.
