This is the coyote that was found as roadkill a couple nights ago. I thought it'd be an interesting (albeit rather graphic
) comparison of what the animal's muscular structure looks like beneath the fur.
Her chin looks funny in the lower picture since it still has the skin and fur left on it since I'll be preparing the pelt as a rug cut (split) rather than a case skinned pelt.
And yes, those are leaves and bits of grass stuck all over her poor body. Yes, they really bothered me. And after five hours of sitting out on the cold, hard ground, no, I didn't sit down and pick all the little annoying leaves and shreds of grass off from her before I took the picture. I'm sorry, girl. x.x

: I did not kill this animal! It was found already dead on the side of the road where it would have simply rotted away to nothing. If you do not like what you see, don't look at it! Also, don't bother wasting your time leaving rude or pointless comments here, they will be ignored.
