    Yes, in the NE and into Eastern canada the 'yotes do have wolf DNA--this variant is much more common than the coy-dog. They are much larger than the southern and SW native coyotes. They have moved into areas that used to have wolf populations. The animals responsible for the death of the hiker on Cape Breton were DNA examined and found to have this difference as well. They have spread rapidly over the last 30 years and are becoming a growing problem. They are even using the ravines to make their way right into the city of Toronto. They are bold and highly adaptable, and will take on large dogs. A Golden breeder friend in Ohio lost a bitch this winter who was attacked INSIDE their dog yard. Her throat was crushed.

    Growing up we would shoot the coyotes messing with the livestock. Those that didn't we pretty much left alone. The biggest problem we had was domestic dogs chasing the sheep and retrievers where the biggest offenders. Those didn't live long...

    I am on a taxidermy forum and people sell more coyotes in the 45-55lb range than they used to.

After I shoot one and walk up to it I'm a little surprised it isn't bigger.
    My buddy shot one last year here locally that was 47 lbs and was 60 inch nose to tip of tail. It looked much bigger due to puffed hair due to winter. Every once and a while one will turn up in central park and are a bit of a problem in the outer boroughs of NYC especially in the Bronx's Van Cortland Park. They have adapted even to the biggest of cities.
