Red wolf hy­brid found on Texas coast

i Newspaper - - THE NEWS MATRIX -

Re­searchers say a pack of wild dogs found on the Texas Gulf coast carry a sub­stan­tial amount of red wolf genes – al­though the an­i­mal was de­clared ex­tinct in the wild nearly 40 years ago. The red wolf-coy­ote hy­brids sug­gest that red wolf DNA is re­mark­ably re­silient after decades of hu­man hunt­ing and loss of habi­tat.
