Canis aureus (golden jackal)

This Jackle really wasn't having a good day. The guide believed it was moving from one open grassy area to another and was taking the road to reduce the chance of meeting a tiger. Then we came along. The Jackal decided (after a long stare) to walk by us rather than go into the forest. I believe this is a pregnant female, but I'm no expert.
