Tina Heil posted a video to Facebook showing an otter chasing away a coyote in Fern Park.

Heil said in her Facebook post she was taking a walk on Sunday at 9 a.m. with her pet when she spotted the odd interaction.

The otter certainly held its ground. As you can see in the video, it chases the coyote away, goes back and waits for it again before heading off into the brush.

Heil also said the coyote didn’t seem to be scared of her at all.
