Coyotes hunt best when they hunt in packs, especially when it comes to bigger prey such as deer. However, it seems like this coyote didn’t get the memo. By the looks of this video, it appears that both the deer and coyote have been locked in a face-off for quite some time. The coyote doesn’t want to risk being injured, so what follows is a game of bluff and retreat as the coyote tests the young deer’s resolve. It almost looks like the coyote is toying with the deer at several points, but don’t be fooled, its more than ready to chow down if the deer lets down its guard.
Finally, after several minutes of feinting and dashing, the coyote decides its had enough exercise for the day and leaves. The deer follows suit, but it looks absolutely exhausted after the encounter.
