I just passed a road kill of a young buck still in velvet seem to be black tailed deer species.
Rigor mortis was evident but the hitter had just pulled it to the roadside away from the traffic flow and left it for all to see. I would guess a bull bar had hit it.
I can pop up a pic if anyones interested.
As I was not there at the time of death I left the kidneys & liver for the yotes to feast on.
This is on highway 1 in California near Jenner ( a lovely stretch of road to drive I might add, may be the best I have seen in USA).
