Life for animals in the wild is often depicted as being a constant, bitter struggle for survival. But it turns out there's still plenty of time for horsing around.
Over the weekend, YouTube user Evnissyen ran across this charming little scene while getting ready for work. On a hill in the distance, a creature who could aptly be described as the world's happiest coyote was spotted enjoying a lively game he'd apparently just invented - solo fetch, with a stolen ball, no less.
"It's pretty rare to see a coyote this close to the house at all, and totally unexpected to see one playing with the neighbour-dog's ball in broad daylight!" wrote Evnissyen.
