Question

What goes up a hill with four legs, and comes down with three.

It is not an un-domesticated animal

Nothing, or nobody gets hurt during the loss of the leg

It isn't a dog

:D

A camera. On its way up the hill, it's in the photographer's camera bag, along with a tripod. On top of the hill, the photographer puts the camera on the tripod and photographs a horse in the meadow below. When the photographer leaves, he walks back down the hill with the images of the horse on either film or as digital files, and a horse has four legs.

The answer is a person. It's a variation of the riddle of the Sphinx and he's using the "Over the Hill" analogy of aging. So you go up a hill on four legs crawling. Near and at the top would be 2 legs (doesn't matter for this riddle) and then down you have the 3 legs because of the cane.

Spoiler for "i think i know":

This was a very absurb logical way of looking at it but it is wrong. The answer is not deep or intelligent.

What goes up a hill with four legs, and comes down with three.

Ooh, I know! A person was going to have a picnic on a hill next to his house and packed four chicken legs. After he ate one it started raining so he went back home.

The riddle says with legs not on legs.
