An especially large coyote–that looked a lot like a wolf–was sighted in Central Park. Gotham Coyote Project co-founder Chris Nagy was called in to explain that the eastern coyote is indeed part wolf, the result of decades of cross-hybridization between the two species.

“They all have some wolf ancestry, meaning that the animals in Central Park, and elsewhere in the city and throughout New York State, are descended from coyotes who interbred with eastern wolves,” explained Chris Nagy.
