Did anyone hear howling last night? We know the neighborhood is home to many different wildlife, and some residents are hearing from a new visitor: the Coywolf.
This hybrid is about 55 pounds heavier than pure coyotes, with longer legs, a larger jaw, smaller ears and a bushier tail. It is part wolf, part coyote and dog (large breeds like Doberman Pinschers and German Shepherds).
