Deer strike back at stalking coyotes in suburban California street

A tense battle of wits between coyotes and deer in Saratoga, California, was witnessed by Rudy Romero on March 6. Romero’s footage shows the coyotes tracking their prey along a suburban street, only for the deer to regroup and briefly chase them off. But, in the final moments of the footage, the hunt is back on. Romero told Storyful: “I saw four coyotes at the intersection of Michael Drive and Canyon View Road. They spotted my truck and broke up in pairs, then I started recording one of the pairs. I see coyotes every day on my route. When I saw the pack of four staring down a deer I thought to pull out my camera.” Credit: Jenelle Romero via Storyful
