There are Red Wolf/Coyote hybrids in eastern NC.
I would love to see an "80 pound" coyote on a scale. My guess is most are field weighted.
87 pounds, spent the best part of the day packing it out while so I could put it on a scale at a packing plant. This is why I raise an eyebrow when I hear of these huge coyotes that probably never touch a scale.
Back to the op, I have heard of supposed dog/wolf cross and that's why there are 200 pound wolves now in Montana. Total BS. When wolves and dogs meet its not for breeding.
