Not great pictures given horrible sky conditions and rain but they tell a story. I came across this beautiful young Coyote as it was working its way through a field yesterday. I noticed it was limping, seemingly favoring its right, front paw.
When I got home and looked closer at the pictures, I realized that paw appears to be much shorter than the others. Perhaps a birth defect or it could have been caught in a trap at some point. The good thing is that it looked quite healthy and other than its pronounced limp, seemed to be okay.
