Have you seen a Coyote with Five Feet before?

Well, this deformed coyote has them.

In a Facebook post shared by Mac Frederick, we see a coyote with five feet. This beast has a strange mutation that has given it an extra foot. These incredible pictures and x-rays prove the five-footed coyote is for real.


The above and below x-ray photographs show the skeletal makeup of this one-of-a-kind mutant coyote.

What would cause such a deformation in this otherwise normal coyote? A genetic defect certainly caused the growth of the extra foot. Could it have been influenced by toxins this coyote came in contact with, or was there a mix-up during gestation? The reasons for this mutation may remain a mystery for some time.
