This coyote is having the time of his life with a ball he found

We know that most dogs enjoy a game of fetch from time to time, so it should only make sense for some of their wilder cousins to also have a ball playing around, right? Take this coyote for instance, who was caught on tape playing with a ball in someone’s yard. YouTube user Evnissyen uploaded the video back in January with the following commentary:

“I saw this guy playing on the hill while I was getting ready for work. It’s pretty rare to see a coyote this close to the house at all, and totally unexpected to see one playing with the neighbour-dog’s ball in broad daylight!”

It is important to note that if you do see a coyote in the wild, it’s best to keep your distance, for both your safety and the safety of the animal.
