It was a golf ball ! The woods are near the Gleneagles golf course but you would have to be a very good golfer to hit it this far into the woods, and a very bad golfer to hit it in the wrong direction. Dad thought maybe a big bird, maybe a corvid, picked it up thinking it was an egg to eat.
We kept walking on. Dad saw a red squirrel with moss in its mouth climbing a tree, maybe to add to its dray. Then we both saw this !
There were tufts of grey fur. Grey fur in roe deer means it died in the winter.
