Need Help with Gray Fox Carcasses

We need the ATA (or anyone reading this) to help a young man. His name is Robbie Morphew, a student at Henderson State. He will be doing a research project on gray fox, much like Allison Surf did with otters. He has asked if we would help provide him with gray fox carcasses. If you can help, contact Robbie at 870-557-8610. Thanks!
