Here's a very stupid sentence from the article (emphasis mine):
As a breed, Siberian Huskies are closely related to wolves, closely related, but does that make her a dangerous dog?
Excuse woo!!!!! We huskies are no closer related than any other domestic dog. (See, for example, Dr. Robert Wayne's research.) We may look more like wolves than my Yorkie friends, like Mary-Margaret O'Brien.
I think that if I was editing the news story, I'd include this sentence:
Humans are slightly related to apes, slightly related, however they are still stupid!
