Adorable Coyote Plays With Toys in Vancouver Backyard

A coyote was filmed playing in a backyard in West Vancouver, Canada, on Friday, April 22.

Video recorded by Alex Kershaw shows the wild animal throwing a ball around and chewing on a dog toy.

Kershaw said she was enjoying a coffee before noticing the animal in her backyard.

“I thought to myself, ‘whose dog is in my backyard?’ and soon realized it was a coyote,” Kershaw told Storyful.

“The way he was playing with my dog’s toys seemed too playful and adorable, so I reached for my phone and captured the moment.

“We don’t often see coyotes play and they have bad reputation of killing cats, small dogs and injuring humans.”
