Buck Rescues Doe From The Jaws Of A Coyote In Wild Pennsylvania Trail Cam Footage

Buck scares off coyote from attacking doe

Big buck to the rescue.

Sometimes you have to just kick back and admire how well placed a trail cam is and this is one of those occasions.

An outdoorsman in Pennsylvania set up a trail cam to scout deer, and while he certainly was able to get eyes on a few, it also picked up a moment where one of those deer nearly lost its life.

At the start, a doe is seemingly just minding her own business, looking for food in the cold northern air, when out of nowhere a coyote jumps up and give her an old fashioned Stone Cold Stunner.

The coyotes teeth grip hard into the doe’s neck, continuously ripping and pulling at her flesh and it sure looks like it’s all over when a hero with shining antlers comes to the rescue.

A large buck appeared and ran off the coyote, which we unfortunately don’t get to see in the video for some reason, but the caption confirms that the doe was able to walk it off and go on about her life, which proves yet again that even docile little deer are much tougher than most humans.

“A coyote attacked a deer right in front of our Trail Cam! The coyote jumped right to the neck of the deer and went straight for the kill.

The coyote got chased off by a buck, and the doe got up and walked away! The doe surprisingly survived.”

And we live on to fight another day…

Mule Deer Fights For Its Life Against A Pair Of Coyotes

Sometimes predators make me mad. I get it, they need  to eat. But, can’t they just leave the deer for us? Coyotes are a very common deer killer in areas they reside. Many people don’t even target them these days due to the low cost of fur at market and in most areas they have no natural predators.

This can create high populations with little to no incentive for people to help manage the populations. For any deer lover, this is a huge problem. It’s easy to be mad about a coyote taking out a buck. That’s a buck that someone could have harvested for them and their family.

Sometimes its easy to minimize them taking out a doe and think it wasn’t a deer we could have gotten anyways. But, that doe has the potential to birth many bucks and does contributing heavily to the population in the area. Needless to say, lets get out there and chase these dogs in the off season.

These two coyotes are seen full on attacking a mule deer. She kicks and fights for all she’s worth. As each coyote attacks she turns and gives them the boot. But, eventually she starts to tire out and they are able to start getting better bites in.

The video ends with both coyotes attached to her and we can all guess the ending of this interactions. A very cool and natural thing to witness.

But, it still gets the gears grindin’ nonetheless.
