Nature show host Coyote Peterson attacked by playful ocelot.

Coyote Peterson hosts a nature show on YouTube called Breaking Trail. Recently they were filming at night down in Costa Rica looking for snakes and other creepy crawlies when they had a close encounter with a young ocelot that took an interest in what they were up to. Here’s what happened:

Peterson ended up with a few scratches and nips, but was otherwise unharmed. Right now this ocelot is still young, but a full-grown one can do some serious damage. This one is known for frequenting the trail and not being afraid of humans so hopefully she doesn’t become a problem when she hits maturity.
