Along the eastern seaboard of North America, a hybrid species has emerged, part wolf and part coyote, and stealthily moving through forests and backyards alike. As a predator it feasts on everything from mice to deer, and scientists believe it is perhaps one of the most adaptable mammals on earth. This documentary examines the origins of this species and its growing presence in North America, training state-of-the-art, high definition infrared cameras on the elusive coywolf and following it through the expanses of Canada’s Algonquin Park to the streets of New York City.
