I think its a baby coyote. Bet the mother left it to starve.
This man will die and the pearl will be mine.
Kino gets behind them about to attack. All of a sudden a cry is heard. The cry is Coyotito's but the trackers don't know that.
My family will survive.
The trackers decide to shoot the 'coyote'. Kino gets angrier and decides to attack. He gets ready right before they shoot.
Kino goes for the attack and the tracker shots but misses. With luck in his hands Kino goes for the kill.
H-He's been shot.
Both Kino and the Tracker get ready to shoot, the others two are ether dead or unconscious.
Right after they had shot, Kino heard a scream and sobs. The tracker, now dead, had missed and shot something in the background.
Going back to their camp, Kino discovers somethimg heart breaking. Coyotito dead, the top of his head gone in the cave Juana was crying over her lost son, grieving. The shock of losing his son made Kino understand the evil of the pearl.
