    hi neil,

    did you get a picture of the dead animal, i suppose you checked it as best you could for signs of illness. was there any hair loss, marks on it of a struggle, open wounds, found in cover or open area etc etc.

    hope alls well.

    if its in the open then i would be wondering why it was dead, a sick and or injured animal would normally find cover to lie up. the heat would also drive it to cover.. if body is now to degraded then you may never know.
    i would return in a couple of weeks and have a look at its teeth if still there. just to get an idea of its age.

    as they say its gone back to nature now..
