What is a Raccoon Dog

 In reading about possible virus vectors for Covid, they have found that Raccoon Dogs in Wuhan have both human DNA and the Covid Virus.

Turns out they are pretty common in parts of Asia - including China. The are canids, kind of a carnivorous member of the dog-ish family like hyenas and foxes.  Who knew?
