Well if you look on wikipedia it says a lot of baboons get herpes, so maybe you are right.

But the males fight mainly over females, and are not violent without any reason. If any primate is close it is probably the baboon.

You've actually got it completely upside down. If we take a Wolf pack as the canine example, their systems are very stable and are based on familial ties. The concept of the Alpha male being this domineering bullying nasty piece of work came from studies performed on captive Wolves; a completely unnatural setting that forced individuals that would ordinarily migrate away from each other to be together in a small area . Studies have also been performed on feral dogs that show they only briefly come together in packs and are much more often solitary scavengers.

If we take a primate example in Chimpanzee's then we have a system that is a lot more violent, they even engage in 'wars' over territory with neighboring Chimps. The clue is in the physicality of those two examples: Wolves are large and powerful because they need to be able to take down prey. Chimps are large and powerful because they eat mainly...fruit? Yeah, they are large and powerful exactly because of the more sinister side to their nature; aggression towards Chimps and towards Monkeys (both of which they will eat).

So, Google is a big cunt of a Chimp.

There seems to be quite a big difference between wolves and feral dogs. The feral wild packs of dogs seem more like chimps as you describe, they even eat their own pack members if it is beneficial to some. I'm not disagreeing with you though.

Yeah, feral dogs don't really have any rules per se, they just scavenge around.

I was talking to someone about this earlier. One on one they can be spoken to, and they can be adapted to the situation. But once you get them in a group all bets are off.

Dogs are more loyal.
