When cold weather rolls around, many animals choose to burrow down and keep a relatively low profile. They only emerge to hunt out bits of food to keep them sustained until their next outing. Animals know just when to seek out a meal and time it perfectly.
From time to time, they confront other species that partake in similar food, and they have a battle over sustenance. One woman caught a glimpse of a battle like this and knew she had to capture the rare encounter on video.
On a blustery winter day, one woman glanced out her window to admire the blanket of snow that covered her backyard. I can only imagine how she sighed joyfully as she took in the glorious sight. Movement in the snow happened to catch her eye as she did a quick double-take.
Near the window, she saw two plump little animals, a fluffy-tailed squirrel, and a squatty bunny rabbit, in a head-to-head duel. The woman quickly grabbed her camera to capture battle. They both were in hot pursuit of some seeds from a bird feeder but knew that only one could walk away victoriously.
They kept a healthy distance between one another as they waited for the other to make the first move. Their jumps, skirts, and prances toward one another make this one of the most enjoyable fights you’ll ever see! Check out the video, below, to see the action unfold.
