POTD: Quiet Desperation

Quiet Desperation
Why, Arizona

It’s not easily seen in this photo, but this coyote’s right rear leg is hanging uselessly above the ground. To feed itself it was hobbling back and forth from the restaurant to the gas station where we were, begging for food. Whether this behavior was an adaption forced by the injury or if it was that behavior that lead to the injury in the first place, I do not know. Either way, it was sad. (And yes, I did throw some food out the window for it.)
