Coyote, San Luis National Wildlife Refuge.
We crossed paths with this coyote during our San Luis NWR visit. IF you look at it, it's missing a big chunk of fur across the back from some previous situation. The area is healed from waht I can tell, but you have to wonder what could have caused that kind of wound.
