My name is Amy and I live in Louisiana. I am looking for Louisiana sportsmen trapping coyotes (or those who have carcasses) that are willing to donate a small, pea-sized tissue sample for genetic research for a project with Princeton University. We need only basic information on the animals trapped and sampled (no personal information is gathered). Would you be interested to contribute?
You can message me here or email me at email@example.com
Info: The Canine Ancestry Project is a collaborative project led by Dr. Bridgett vonHoldt of Princeton University. Amy Shutt is the local coordinator for Louisiana. The objective is to explore the genetic consequences of admixed (hybrid) ancestry inNorth American canids. We also will work to estimate the extent and timing of gene flow between coyote and wolves across North America during the past 1,000 years.
