Science Writing, (EFE).- A study published this Thursday in Scientific Reports has revealed that dogs bite more frequently (up to 11 percent more) on the hottest and sunniest days, and when the levels of air pollution are more tall.
Previous research has documented that warmer weather and higher levels of air pollution may be associated with increased aggression in humans, rhesus monkeys, rats, and mice.
However, it is not clear if the aggression of dogs towards humans also follows this trend and, following this study, the authors advise that more data and research are needed to confirm this conclusion.
The study was led by Clas Linnman, a researcher at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital Neuroimaging Laboratory in Boston, Massachusetts (United States).
