Don’t mess with a domestic cat who has bad attitudes. That lesson was recently learned from a coyote who got too close to a property guarded by the domestic cat equivalent of Chuck Norris.
I’m not 100% sure where this special Domesticated Pet / Wildlife moment is. Does it really matter? No it does not. Not if you have a cat throwing at an uninvited coyote. Be proud, Chuck Norris. Good guys wear black … and are furry.
Many of the comments on YouTube praised the kitten for its bravery, but some others warned about how coyotes will try to lure pets away so they can dispose of them elsewhere:
Holden Magroyn – “Coyote probably tried to bait the cat a little along the fence line, where four or five other coyotes were waiting.”
Lapeer Charlie – “The coyote is working to lure the cat onto the path where his companions are lying in ambush. Also spoiler alert: If the coyote wanted to, he would single-handedly overpower and catch this cat without breaking a sweat.”
This is something of an urban myth that many pet sites disagree with. The Fur Bearers (great website name, by the way) debunk this by mentioning that coyotes don’t usually hunt in packs.
There’s been a whole Quora discussion going on for literally years with owners claiming that coyotes are out to get their dogs and cats. But not on this day for a cat Chuck Norris would be proud of.
