Unlikely Valentines: Coyote and Bobcat Become Best Friends

This coyote pup is the runt of her litter which leads her to an unusual acquaintance.

If you’ve ever had a weakness for puppies, this coyote pup might just steal your heart. Growing up as the runt in her litter, Macey meets Prescilla, a young bobcat, and they don’t waste any time becoming best friends at Dade City’s Wild Things.

In the wild, coyotes and bobcats live separate lives competing as predators for the same resources. At this animal reserve all they’re competing for is each other’s attention.

Often your typical dogs and cats do not get along, yet sometimes we discover our greatest attributes in the unlikeliest of places. Macey found her confidence and courage through Prescilla which enabled her to fit in as the runt with the rest of her brothers and sisters.

This extraordinary relationship, unfortunately, will have to be separated if the two grow into their predatory instincts to hunt and kill, but rest assured, as long as they share their sisterly bond they will be playmates forever.
