“We Wants It”

This scene reminded me of Gollum in Lord of the Rings — though it was not quite so sinister! These are two coyote male siblings. The one watching has an injured front paw, and I wondered if he was expecting a free handout because of this. This injured fellow watched his hunting sibling and kept his distance at first. After prey had been caught, this fellow approached the successful hunter and then followed him, back and forth. When the hunter finally started eating, the injured guy went right up to him — a growl, ears back and slanted eyes told him to stay away. Not until the meal had been devoured did this envious guy move off, and even then he looked longingly back at what he had missed. The front paw was not badly inured, and the minor limp was gone within a couple of days.
