The Friendly Pooch?
This seemingly friendly and smiling little dog is actually a coyote. However, it's not an ordinary coyote; it has a bit of a nasty temperament. You can see it's not a cuddly pet, especially with its bitten ear, likely from numerous fights. Just moments before this photo was taken, it attacked another coyote resting after a vigorous hunt in the snow. A year ago, it even bit a tourist exploring Yellowstone National Park. The lesson here is that wild animals, even if they appear friendly, can be dangerous. It's recommended to keep a safe distance, as you never know how a close encounter with a seemingly "friendly" creature might turn out.
