I would like to salvage this animal and agree to the terms of salvage:
I safely, humanely, and lawfully dispatched this injured animal:
Probably. I'm a bit uncertain.
At 1334, I drove over Govt Hill and spotted a group of 3 adult does. I stopped and took a GPS Pt: 44.258477, -111.466747. I drove back through the area at 1610 and spotted blood in the N-bound lane, which had not been present before. It was a small fresh blood spot. I got out and walked the area and I found bloody tracks heading off the road. I lost the tracks. I found a broken off mirror and other vehicle debris near the blood. I saw ravens heading East across the highway and tried to see where they were going down, but it was somewhere beyond the wall of Lodgepole. I was not able to find the animal or verify that it was a mule deer. A wildlife-vehicle collision definitely occurred in this area and the animal was able to move quite a ways off the road.
