I found this jackrabbit laying on the side of a dirt road in the middle of the desert, I stopped to see what was going on since he did not move when I drove passed him. Apparently this poor guy was suffering from what looked like a broken leg. Just after I approached, he bolted off into the desert using his good leg. It's always hard to see these things happen in nature...
