Well..doesn't look like a gunshot gone wrong.....maybe trying to open a metal garbage can with his jaw...least that's what 'Mom would always say'...."gonna break your teeth and I'm not gonna pay to fix them"
Ouch! Probably wasn’t capable of eating much anything tougher than a peach
My money’s on having been struck by a vehicle. Not that it matters, his troubles are over.
I’ve seen headshots gone wrong and I don’t think this is that. I also see the point about bear fight brutality…but as brutal as they are they don’t usually last a super long time as it becomes clear who the dominant beast is and the loser submits. Lots of flesh wounds but I find myself thinking the loser would submit and run away long before getting its actual skull busted.
This looks consistent with having been smacked in the side of the face HARD.
