I was just driving back from the airport about midnight and was on the edge of Apex/Cary on Davis Drive. A coyote ran across the road in front of me, from the back of the elementary school into a sub division. It was a big one and did not seem intimidated by my car. Definitely going to keep the pets close.

These animals are part wolf. DNA studies have been done on recent animals and on samples taken from past specimens. The true coyote came over from the western USA, through Canada (picked up some grey wolf) in the mid-1800s, at least this is when the movement was first documented. They stayed in Canada for some time then started migrating south. There are researchers in Mass. and NYS that study these animals and have many published articles about coywolf.

This phenomena is interesting for many reasons, a couple I will not mention here. But, what I will say is if you take the adaptability of a coyote and cross it with the mass and hardiness of a grey wolf you get a pretty good genetic, all-around carnivore. Not as elusive as wolves. There have been 3000 coywolves documented in Chicago. You can tell them apart by their howl (like a TV ghost howl), the way they hold their tails when they run, their size, and the way they hunt. Coywolves hunt in packs as do wolves. Oh, and the mane around the neck is much more grey in a coywolf. I love these animals, they are so eerie to hear at night, just amazing.

When you are walking on a greenway, in Cary for instance, and you come across large (80 pound-dog sized) poop po that has a lot of hair in it sitting in the middle of the greenway, you'll know what's been there ahead of you, marking their territory.
