There is a scientific study of coyotes in NY and PA and it shows that 20% of the coyotes have wolf genes ! That explains the existance of the large 70 lb coyotes found here. That's the work of Roland Kays.
So if it looks like a wolf and walks like a wolf it must be a coyote/wolf !!
Next thing we have to do in NY and PA is to get the officials to admit that there are mountain lions here !
