This wild coyote obviously has had some serious wounds to heal. One can only admire the strength and will to live it must have taken for it to recover from such injuries. These adaptable, intelligent and social animals are great at reducing the rodent population and beneficial to have around. I photographed this coyote in 2012 and just saw it again on 2.1.2015 mousing in the same spot.
