We had a big ol house cat who use to tear up the neighboring dogs. He sharpin' up his claws on the front yard trees. Once sent a much big dog fleeing with a left hook to the snout. He sure could do annoying dogs.
I seen a yote back down from a cat in squirrel season they were about 150 yards away i couldnt get a clear shot on the coyote but the cat didnt take off as fast as the coyote, so I would say the cat 1 on 1.
Here's another video I found on youtube...I think the cat will hold its own for sure, but coyotes like other dogs can be persistent and eventually get what they want haha. Also interesting in this video is through the series there is a deer within yards of the cat and they just ignore each other.
I believe both animals respect each other and more than likely won't tango with one another. I know that when running hounds , when a coyote is done running he will stop and fight, a cat will tree and avoid conflict. Sproul. By the way the last I checked a bobcat has four claws on each paw which would give him eight rasor blades to go with his teeth for fighting. Someone on here must be mixing a cat track with a fisher track.
