Observation Date / Time

I was traveling eastbound on the other side of freeway when I observed the roadkill. I could see clearly that it was a deer. I had not noticed it driving westbound about an hour earlier, however, it was on the hillslope on side of road (I'm assuming it had been drug up there to move it off roadway).
