We genetically profiled a sample of eastern coyotes and dogs collected from southeastern Ontario, Canada, to assess levels of hybridization between these species and to clarify the evolutionary history of the eastern coyote. We found evidence of Y-chromosome introgression from dogs into eastern coyotes, which we suggest occurred historically during the coyote's eastward range expansion.
