A recent video that’s since gone viral shows a deer battling a coyote in Maine.

The coyote was looking for a meal but the deer was fighting for survival.

Tylor Kellys Camps & Guide Service in Allagash captured the footage. 

Coyote vs Deer

It was hard to watch what happened on the ice yesterday. A coyote chased a deer out onto the ice and it didn’t look good for the deer. But she was a fighter and was able to escape when Wade pulled into the driveway and scared the coyote back into the woods. We found ourselves routing for the deer but in nature there’s no good guys or bad guys. Just animals living life and doing what they were created to do.
