I was walking along the foot path near the Delaware & Raritan Canal in Rocky Hill when I came upon this carcass. I don’t know what it is. I’m not an expert but I think it might be a deer fawn. I don’t see any canine teeth, the bones are small, and their was a lot of fur strewn along the ground. Yeah, it’s probably deer.

I think it’s been dead for a while. There is no meat on the bones. The local insects, small animals and birds have picked every bit of flesh from the body.
