Lightbulb Coyotes and Wolves Share Close Ancestry

Coyote DNA
"In 1993, a study proposed that the wolves of North America display skull traits more similar towards the coyote than those wolves from Eurasia.[50] In 2016, a whole-genome DNA study proposed, based on the assumptions made, that all of the North American wolves and coyotes diverged from a common ancestor less than 6,000117,000 years ago. The study also indicated that all North America wolves have a significant amount of coyote ancestry and all coyotes some degree of wolf ancestry, and that the red wolf and eastern wolf are highly admixed with different proportions of gray wolf and coyote ancestry."

"Coyotes may occasionally form mutualistic hunting relationships with American badgers, assisting each other in digging up rodent prey.[92] The relationship between the two species may occasionally border on apparent "friendship", as some coyotes have been observed laying their heads on their badger companions or licking their faces without protest. The amicable interactions between coyotes and badgers were known to pre-Columbian civilizations, as shown on a Mexican jar dated to 12501300 CE depicting the relationship between the two.[93]"

Coyotes and wolves can breed and produce viable offspring. Doesn't that mean they are the same genetically?
