Watch Dog Play With Wild Coyote

By author of The Realblog with Stephanie Mallory

If the dog in this video was smaller, the video footage caught by a homeowner in an Arizona neighborhood might have revealed a much grimmer scene. But, as it is, the video shows a wild coyote and large dog playing together, each apparently enjoying the other's company.

As you know, coyote-dog interactions rarely end in play. My own neighborhood has lost numerous small dogs to coyote attacks. And, if you do a simple Google search of coyote attacks on dogs, you'll find example after example with even large dogs becoming victims of attacks. But occasionally, the two canine species get along. I shared another video of a husky playing with a wild coyote a few weeks ago. Have you ever witnessed anything like this?
