Golden jackals ( Canis aureus , Linneaus 1758) are one of the wide distributed carnivores in Iran. Bone fracture in wild animals did not classified and not studied before. A golden jackal referred to Veterinary teaching and research hospital, Shahid Bahonar University of Kerman, Iran with the sign of lameness in the left forelimb, radiologic assay shows the comminuted fracture in humerus diaphysis.
