I never really thought of coyotes as aggressive, or at least anytime I've ever encounter one they've all been scared and usually ran off as fast as they could. This guy came across a coyote that means business! At first glance it seems friendly, but not really. He remained clam and managed to escape the encounter without being eaten. WARNING: video contains strong language!

It just goes to show that no matter how familiar you are with certain wildlife and their habits or temperament you never really know how they'll react when approached. Real wildlife isn't anything like Disney films, just because an animal is cute or usually non-aggressive doesn't mean you can treat them like they're domesticated.

While it looks like the coyote is playing and friendly it's still a wild animal. This guy absolutely did the right thing in how he handled it, keeping the animal in front of him and not turning his back to it. This could have gone really bad!
