Observation Date / Time

I was told about this road killed kit fox by Ben Teton, wildlife manager of the Panoche Valley Preserve. It was easy to find since there were 14 turkey vultures convened around the carcass which was still very much intact. I did not take any samples as I am not permitted under the Endangered Species Act.
