I would like to salvage this animal and agree to the terms of salvage:
I safely, humanely, and lawfully dispatched this injured animal:
I salvaged the four legs and shoulders. I discarded the body and the head because the insides of the animal were spoiled. The head was in poor shape as well.
I'm absolutely certain
The elk was hit by a car/truck before I got there. He was a small spike, his left spike was broken off when I arrived. I assume it broke off by the impact of the hit. The spike on his head was on his right side and the length was about a foot and a half, the width was around an inch or so. He was laying in the middle of Croy Canyon road. He was spilling guts and blood out of his insides and he was paralyzed, unable to move. I took the responsibility to dispatch the animal. I salvaged his shoulders and legs and transported his carcass 3-4 miles out Rock Creek road and disposed it on BLM land in sagebrush, away from hikers, bikers, and traffic. I don't have pictures, but I am an an avid hunter and I am absolutely certain that he was a young bull elk.

The impact and dispatch happened within an hour. My brother told me he followed the person who hit the elk and came home and told me. We raced out there to handle the situation.
