Meet the Coy- Wolf !

A new beginning ?

A new , a "hybrid" , animal has emerged on the home front of the natural world in North America , scientist's and biologist's in eastern America and Canada are studying the lifestyles of an emerging hybrid wolf - coyote - domestic dog mix , a mongrel , If you will ? Apparently a cross between a coyote , an eastern wolf or timber wolf and perhaps even a domestic dog . From the below the Virginia's on up to Quebec , from New Brunswick , to Chicago and even west from there and apparently this coy-wolf is even more adaptable than even a coyote . Living even in the outskirts , the suburbs of Toronto , Chicago , Washington D.C. ! Actually , the biologists' have been studying this animal for a couple of decades . Just some of the physical features of this hybrid are , an oversized head , neck and chest region capitalizing on the "kill advantages " of wolves , The eye socket's are larger , perhaps to even increase it's night vision ability ?

I watched a recent documentary where biologists filmed these cagey animals stocking domestic pets within the city limits of Toronto . They were also filmed in infra-red camera's actually following joggers as they ran around the suburbs at night . Of course , they are also as adaptable as a black bear or a raccoon for that matter , they are opportunistic feeders quite often raiding the garbage bags left on the curb at night . Part of the video shows this quite adaptable hybrid actually denning in the cloverleaf's of highway intersections , and why ? Because even with the traffic noises they can be assured that no human activity takes place there .

I am always amazed by mother natures ability to adapt to the encroachment of man , considering that many of these animal species have been pushed to near extinction ,in far too many cases . Once I even read an article by a scientist who claimed that , in the end of the world as we know it , or at least in society as we know it , there will be few survivors in the animal word , one of them would be the cock- roach and the other ? The coyote . And now maybe - the Coy-Wolf !
