Coyote and Badgers

A friend sent me this wonderful video. https://openspacetrust.org/blog/coyote-and-badger/ These two are behaving like very best friends, and in a certain way they are: they are hunting partners. In fact, badgers and coyotes cooperate during hunts: the two together are more effective that each alone. For more, read “Why Coyotes and Badgers Hunt together”

Interestingly, two “explanations” for this coyote’s behavior have been sent to me by various viewers: 1) that, “see, coyotes DO lure their prey to their deaths”, and 2) that, these are “friends”. What’s even more interesting to me is how many people rely on their first impressions rather than trying to find out more. The best thing about this video is that it is causing many more people to see coyotes in a positive light! :))
