Coyote vs. Cat

This is why you being your pets inside at night, especially if you live in an area with predators. To a hungry coyote, a cat can appear as delicious as any roadrunner. Tony Gray of Surfside Beach, Texas, captured a fight between a coyote and a cat on his security video system. The cat is not his. The feline ran to his deck for safety, but the coyote was not giving up. The cat tries both fleeing and fighting for his life, and jumped to the handrail a couple of times, only to be pulled back by the coyote. The cat finally claws its way up a wooden upright, staying out of the coyote's reach. After the predator left, the cat stayed up there a full minute before making himself scarce. (via Fark)

Surfside Beach! My old stomping grounds when I used to work for Dow Chemical in Freeport, Texas. No surprise about the coyotes - they're all over Galveston Island just north of Surfside. The cat was lucky.
