Extremely Rare Footage: Coyote Defies Odds, Takes on Mountain Lion in an Epic Predator Battle, Unveiling Nature’s Astonishing Display

Before watching this video, if you had asked me who wins in a coyote versus mountain lion fight, I would have said with 100% certainty the mountain lion.

Bigger, faster, stronger, I mean all of the attributes seem to line up perfectly for the big cat, however it appears a coyote is more capable than I once thought.

A video was uploaded a few years back of these two predators coming to blows in Datle, New Mexico. The man filming was driving past in his truck when he heard some strange noises and saw the two starting to fight.

Unfortunately, it took him a few seconds to get the brawl in frame, so the video starts with the coyote already on top, pinning the lion to the ground. You can see the damage on his face, so it wasn’t just one lucky strike that put him down, seems the coyote got a few good ones in.

The video (which is so shaky it might make your face go numb) continues with the two going back and forth, the mountain lion able to break free, get some good offensive strikes in and cause the coyote to take off down the road for a victory.

Yes, the mountain lion came out on top of this one, and the coyote ran off, but I cannot believe the coyote was able to not only hold his own, but win a few moments. If we brought the judges in, I’m thinking a few may score a round of two for the underdog.

Nature, man…

Just when you think you’re starting to understand it, something like this throws you for a loop…
