Millions of ‘coywolf’ coyote-wolf hybrids live in North America

Wolves, coyotes, and dogs have formed a new type of creature referred to as the “coywolf” — that is, it is primarily a coyote-wolf hybrid — and researchers estimate there are now millions of them roaming around North America. Researchers believe a growing lack of suitable mates lead wolves to start breeding with dogs and coyotes, and their offspring has turned out to be a strong new species spreading quickly across different types of environments.
