MESA, AZ – What is it about rattlesnakes? Are they the animal bullies of the desert or just really good targets for larger animals?
For the second time in a week, a rattlesnake has been captured on video in a fight with another animal.
ABC15 reports that one of heir viewers captured a rattlesnake and coyote going at it by Baseline and Recker Roads in Mesa.
The video shows the coyote lunging at the snake a few times. (Get Phoenix Patch’s daily newsletter and real-time news alerts. Or, find your local Patch here and subscribe).
It’s not clear how the fight ended.
That wasn’t the case last week when a real estate broker in Scottsdale caught a fight between a rattlesnake and a bobcat.
The bobcat clearly won that fight.
