VIDEO: "Genius Level" Mule Deer Blends In With Bison Herd To Avoid Attacking Coyote

By

“Up Slough Creek, in Yellowstone National Park, on Saturday, October 15, 2022 (the day the East Entrance Road reopened after June flood damage) the bison were stampeding off and on, so I was taking some phone video when a mule deer sprinted into the frame, pursued by a coyote. Genius-level survival strategy on the part of the deer – run into a bison herd. Coyote abandoned the pursuit.”

Smooth move by this mule deer in Yellowstone that found refuge from an attacking coyote in the middle of a bison herd. The coyote thought better of continuing its pursuit while the deer was surrounded by 2,000lbs giants and peeled off. Very clever move.
