Sounds like a good project for somebody wanting a MS or PhD to me.
It's already been done several times, and is scientifically documented. Eastern "coyotes" being wolf/yote hybrids instead of coyotes is not speculation, it is scientific fact. Every study done on coyotes in the east so far (and it's been quite a few of them,) have shown a good bit of wolf DNA in the "yotes." Every single one.

I guess I will not be discriminating that much then as the lease President has advised to kill what we can.

I do respect wildlife by all means but if there's anything I can do to assist in the survival of a few species over an invasive predator then I will do so.

The Coyote Challenge was referenced in a recent episode of Joe Rogan's podcast. The guest is Dan Flores. If you have time, I would recommend listening in to the first 30 minutes or so, very interesting. You can find it on You Tube (Joe Rogan Experience # 942). I won't provide the link due to some of the language.
