Hard to tell from the photograph, although I will state that, the way the head is positioned on the ground (very flat, and not raised or tilted to either side) It appears this animal has had it's horns removed? Judging from the larger rough patch on the front of the neck it does appear to be a male of the species. Can you confirm my theory? Also I am guessing by the way the legs are stiffened, and the minor bloat in the belly that this animal had been dead or a few hours, as it appears that the animal is in full rigor, which is why the legs are not bent at the mid joints (elbows and knees). Can you give us anymore information surrounding the situation?

I would want to say "Nice shot" but I'not sure if you shot it or just took a picture. :)

I know...it was really weird to find.
