Circumstances:
On final approach to runway 05L at Galkayo Airport, while about five to seven feet above the terrain, Captain noticed an animal crossing the runway from left to right. He attempted to extend the flare in order to avoid a collision but the aircraft subsequently touched down hard and bounced several times. Eventually, it veered off runway and came to rest with both wings partially sheared off.
