      Dogs are descended from wolves, which not only have a large neocortex - the
      brain's centre of reasoning - but live in large social groups. So their

      But it's facing a whale of a problem: The technologies it says it needs to
      spy on enemy subs are so loud that they can ruin the lives of nearby
      leviathans, which rely on their ears like we use our eyes.

      Next Monday, lawyers representing the Navy and the National Resources
      Defense Council (NRDC) will square off in U.S. District Court over a program
      that tests new sub-detection techniques in coastal waters -- the most
      heavily populated part of the oceans." ...more
