When I first started watching this YouTube video, I thought the coyote was stalking the dog. But, then after watching more of the footage and reading the video description written by the dog's owner, I realized the dog and coyote were friends.
The video description states, "Onyx the Siberian Husky playing with Zoey the coyote. Onyx and Zoey have known each other for a while now. We occasionally visit her (we even gave her the name). Sometimes she comes closer and lets us pet her, but we didn’t bring any treats this time, so no pets for Zoey!"
Seems like Onyx and Zoey have been pals for a while. On the YouTube page Onyx the Sibe, you can watch other encounters between the two canines. Have you ever had an encounter with a friendly coyote? Why do you think the coyote is so friendly to the dog?
