Is this a really good photoshop job or a case of short spine syndrome? You decide.
It’s unfortunate that we have to even consider the fact that this could be a really good photoshop job, but my money is on that it’s short spine syndrome. What do you think?
Not much is known about these two coyotes, though there’s good chance that these pictures are real and that this is the result of short spine syndrome. On average, most coyotes are a little under 3 feet in length (without tail) and judging by these two pictures, these dogs looked to be well under that.
According to The University of Sidney, dog’s suffering from this type of syndrome, the vertebrae will remain in cartilage form and won’t ever harden into a bone. Thus “this will result in the compression of the vertebrae and the severe shortening of the whole vertebral column”.
The dog above made internet waves a few months ago after it was revealed to have short spine syndrome, too. Now, what do you think about those coyotes?
