Footage of unexpected wildlife friends from Bay Area makes viral rounds

Some friendly local critters are now viral stars!

This video has been making the rounds, but its original source is the Peninsula Open Space Trust, or POST.

A blurb from the organization's website helps us understand just how remarkable the video is:

Here, this pair is using a culvert to travel underneath a highway near the Southern Santa Cruz Mountains. Studies have shown that a badger and coyote hunting together can be beneficial for both species, as they pursue favorite prey such as ground squirrels. This shared use of a crossing structure might be the first observation of its kind, anywhere!
