Copy GIF to clipboard Always pastes PNG file

I am unable to copy and paste a GIF from clipboard into an application.

It will copy/paste in finder as a GIF and keep format, but copy and paste into an application ends up with pasting the GIF as a single frame PNG.

The release note show the following, which tells me this isn't possible using a built in method.
Avoid copying many different image formats on the clipboard, only save TIFF and PNG formats.

Anyone have a workaround for this rather redundant limitation? Would also create some issues when I start utilizing this for moving RAW and JPG files that I need to not get converted to a PNG.
