Sri Lankan Elephant Calf Found Dead In Tree

From Arbroath:

An image has emerged from Sri Lanka of a dead elephant calf stuck high in a tree after getting caught up in the country’s fast-flowing floods. The animal was found near the Galoya river, which rose 18ft (5.5m) above its normal height. Local villagers alerted photographer Kanchana Kumara Ariyadasa, who took the picture.

Haunting Coyote Roadkill Silhouette

From Boing Boing:

Dylan Menges snapped this haunting silhouette left behind when he moved the still-warm corpse of a roadkilled coyote: “She hadn’t been there long (still warm), and moving her carcass off the road revealed the salty silhouette from passing cars on a winter highway.”
