A new species of predator which is a hybrid of a wolf and an Eastern coyote has been nicknamed a 'coywolf,' by scientists for its unique DNA. The wild animal has been spotted roaming around West Virginia and the land north of the Great Lakes and was created after humans forced two species to live closer together and mate. It is a hybrid of a coyote and a wolf and has about 1/4 wolf DNA, 2/3 coyote DNA and the rest of its DNA comes from domesticated dogs. These animals have a completely new genetic make-up and were created when previously separate wolf and coyote populations merged north of the Great Lakes. However, the coywolf is well suited to its habitat. via Mail Online.
