That the ancestor of the coyote and eastern wolf arrived in North America tens of thousands of years before the grey wolf is beyond dispute. After that did DNA get mixed somewhere in the past 10000 years? That is quite possible. That does not dismiss that a wolf evolved seperately in the eastern forests of North America. That wolf is different from grey wolves and hybrids. This lady sampled 2 wolves from Algonqin. Canadian researchers have sampled hundreds and have been studying Algonquin wolves for 75 years.

There is very little in the scientific community that is 100% beyond dispute. Theories and understanding frequently change as new information is gathered.

But I am interested in reading more about the sources that are informing your opinions. Can you provide some links or references?

There was a great "Nature" show aired on PBS a few years back about this exact topic. It explained a lot with good scientific evidence from DNA. They re-broadcast from time to time.

Get this book.

https://www.amazon.ca/Wolf-Country-E.../dp/0771085621

Tons of scientific information with comparisons between Algonquin Wolves, hybrids just outside Algonquin (Frontenac Arch) and Eastern Coyotes in the Adirondacks:

Also here is great information about possible wolf movement between Ontario and the Adirondacks
