Coyote DNA Project - coydogs or coywolves??


Hello All. For those who don't know me, I'm the state's furbearer biologist for the Ohio DNR. I am working jointly with a geneticist to determine the percentages of coyote, wolf, and dog DNA in Ohio coyotes. Ohio is unique in that it is a place where the eastward expansion of coyotes is meeting the southwestern expansion of coyotes from further northeast.

I am asking for help from coyote trappers. All I need is a piece of coyote tongue (about the size of a nickle) placed in a Ziploc bag and frozen. The only information I need is the date, location, and a description of anything odd about the coyote (white tipped tail, dark-black, etc.). I need about 100 samples from across the state.

If you can help, please reply to me here, or directly at suzie.prange@dnr.state.oh.us. Thanks so much for your help!!

OK, people help her out if possible. We plan to have a muskrat carcass pickup at the Zanesville sale so maybe you could have some tongues for her by then. Those of you around me can get them to me to take if needed.

Thanks so much. I'm thinking of attending some coyote round ups for samples. Does anyone know of ones coming up soon?

I know there is one coming up soon in Meigs County, but I really need northern and western samples (but I'm not saying I won't take southern Ohio samples !).

I emailed Susie Prange, the official in charge of the study. She said she has sent the samples (almost 130) to a genealogist at Princeton. They did get DNA but are still testing and it could take up to a year. When the study is complete she said she will publish a paper about it somewhere online.

Susie is no longer with ODNR and I'm not sure who has the results. I was told what they were but I can't remember the exact numbers. I know it was something like 80% coyote, 3% wolf, and the remainder was domestic dog. Again don't quote me on that it was a year ago and just in passing.

This is the official site of the project.

I think they still have yet to publish the final results.
