Keywords:Raccoon, Coyote, Mesopredator Release Hypothesis
The video of a brief encounter between a Coyote Canis latrans and a North American Raccoon Procyon lotor, in a suburban backyard in California, is described. In the footage, the Raccoon chases the Coyote, supporting other observations that, in some contexts, Raccoons do not fear Coyotes and may behave aggressively toward them.
