Contrary to some "experts" beliefs.... wolves eat coyotes.  You can always tell when the wolves come back here...no coyotes. No howls at night, no seeing them in the day...they're gone, and the ones that don't go... die.  Seen it for the past 20 years here. The wolves have also taken care of most of our cats (mountain lion, bobcat, etc.).  They're  called an "Apex" predator for a reason!

That's pretty impressive if they wipe out mountain lions.  :-\
No matter how conventional wisdom may fly in the face of radical thought, it's still the most popular type.

Last time we visited the Cody Wyoming area they said the bear problem was getting worse because the wolves were driving the elk out of Yellowstone and the bear were following the elk.

  There are wolves here in the Lower Penisula west of Topinabee.  The DNR has trapped, tagged and DNA tested some of them.  Some are actually a wolf coyote hybrid.  The tests show from a female wolf male coyote relationship  :)  They will cross when their own species aren't numerous enough to breed true.
  We've seen a large canine in the neighborhood a couple times.  It's a large dark marked animal.  Wolf or a wolf coyote or an exceptionally large coyote?  I don't know  :)

Bibbyman...not so sure that the elk are being "driven" out of the park. I did a quick google search and discovered the resident elk herd in Yellowstone has dropped dramatically.  In 1992, there were 20,000 elk.  2011 just a little over 4,000. >:(
The wolves (as Hardtail John referred to) also hammered the coyote population in Yellowstone.

Around "here" we have a healthy wolf population as well as a healthy coyote and deer population. Big equalization of populations over here is winter mortality. One bad winter can just about wipe out the deer heard which then wipes out the predators as well.

Wolves are moving in around our property (within miles of it not right on it) and I've noticed the coyotes seem to be thinning out a little...

Cougars and Deer still running around though
