This carcass has been laying just off the paved perimeter path in the northeast corner of the park (very near the Burrowing Owl preserve) for about three weeks. It’s clearly a mammal larger than a rat, gopher, or ground squirrel. It measures about 24 inches including the tail. In this area I have seen and photographed a raccoon, and about a month ago I smelled but did not see a skunk. I’ve also seen and photographed jackrabbits in this area, but this animal was not a rabbit — look at the length of its tail. If anyone with expertise in this area can identify it please shoot me an email. Thank you.
