Observation Date / Time

I did not personally observe this roadkill, but my neighbors did, and sent me the photo. The elk was actually hit at 40.90033620296318 Lat -124.01260360890787 Long (we know this because there was blood and skid marks where the driver drug or pushed the elk with their auto around the corner to the observation point, butchered it and left the carcass). The CA Department of Fish and Wildlife was called and they came to observe and investigate the kill.
