Mare Protects Newborn Foal From Coyotes
The mare in the photo below is Bonnie, who lives in an animal shelter.
The tiny fawn is a newborn – her mother had given birth nearby and was struggling to fend off two coyotes, ready to take advantage of her post-natal weakness.
That’s when Bonnie intervened, protecting the newborn fawn until the deer managed to move the coyotes on.
