A Tempe, Arizona, a resident videoed a neighbor’s dog playing with a wild coyote on Sunday morning. The Airedale and the coyote chased each other in true canine fun fashion – the coyote’s tail wagging happily.

According to AZFamilyNews, the coyote and the dog entertained each other and acted as if they had been friends for years. The encounter occurred near Price Road and Avenue. Although the woman videoing the action, Cassandra Collett, stated she was nervous being so close to the coyote, the animal seemed quite tame.

EDIT: Just wanted to answer a few questions for everyone. This is in Tempe Az. We do have a golf course in our neighborhood so I think they might have a den there? Not sure…
Also our neighbors accidentally forgot their dog outside when getting the morning paper. I made sure she got home safe and sound.”

    Is that really a good idea? I thought coyote’s try to play and lead their prey away from a safe area to an area where a pack could attack an unsuspecting animal.

    Wolves and coyotes have ALWAYS been unfairly judged. Please support the organizations that correctly educate people about the various wolf families.

    Also, please support the wolf sanctuaries, among the numerous other animal organizations that are seriously helped by the online site “Shop for Your Cause”.

    while this is adorable, it is also irresponsible. Why is the dog outside unattended?? This may not have gone so well… The dog could have been hit by a car (yes, I see it is a cul de sac, but cars still go up & down it) the dog could have been stolen or gotten lost… anything can happen. And when it does, the owner will be heartbroken, but it will be their own fault.
