Really? This sounds to me like an excuse not to conserve the wolf, since, after all, the coyote now lives where the wolf once did -- and never mind that true wolves kill off and tend to extirpate coyotes. Those cattle guys outside Yellowstone will love that. And, since some were already alleging that the red wolf was a just a wolf-coyote hybrid anyway, well, there's another species we no longer have to conserve. What will the anti-wolf folks come up with next?
