I-8 dead antelope?

Recommended Posts

EB I-8 yesterday I’m 90% sure I saw a dead female antelope on the left about 25 miles west of Gila Bend?  Very odd and I was driving fast but pretty sure I saw what I saw.

I have seen a few down there.  They are all over the Goldwater bombing range.

Interesting... I'll keep my eye out on the way home from San Diego tomorrow.

Eastbound I-8?

Sonoran pronghorn perhaps?  They are found south of I-8 between Gila Bend and Yuma.  A herd of Sonoran pronghorn has also been established on Kofa NWR/YPG in King Valley.  Who knows where that one wondered over from.

Yes right around where it changes to Maricopa County

I have seen lopes between quartzite and yuma  several times and they even have signs on the road.

Not a pronghorn. It's a doe or fawn mule deer. It was 1 or 2 miles west of the rest stop in that area. I kept my eyes peeled the next 15 miles but didnt see any lope.

Tue morning heading west on I-8 on the right side, less than a half mile from the Yuma county line, looked to be a dead mule deer doe. Was very orange colored and just got a glimpse as we went by. Very dry ugly stretch where there is barely even scrubby creosote.

I saw that doe as well. I was surprised there were two dead doe in such a close area on each side of the interstate both killed at a similar time.
