Subject: [texbirds] Red Wolf
An article from the NYT. July 27, 2016, by Carl Zimmer indicates that DNA studies have demonstrated that the Red Wolf was/is never a true species but a hybrid Gray Wolf/Coyote. Don't know if the DNA study is the final word but I would guess that more work will be done. The article states that; about 50,000 years ago there was a split in the genomes; one route lead to the Gray Wolf and the other to the Coyote.
