Another explanation is that the beasts were some type of domestic dog or crosses between wild wolves and domestic dogs, on account of their large size and unusual coloration.[2] This theory has found support from naturalist Michel Louis, author of the book La bête du Gévaudan: L'innocence des loups (English: The Beast of Gévaudan: The innocence of wolves) and an episode of Animal X. Wolf-dog crossbreds were usually noted as not sharing their wolf parent's fear of man. In many cases the resulting adult crossbred may be larger than either of its parents due to the genetic phenomenon of heterosis.[8] Observations on wild wolf-dog crossbreds in the former Soviet Union indicate that they may form larger packs than pure wolves, and have greater endurance when chasing prey.[9]
