I would put it in a bag & freeze it.
Then call the local vets & let them know
go on line to parrot 911 & post the info
Local papers should have a free lost & found add area, post
also call local shelters & animal control to see if they
know who is looking. -they may not only want to know but
also want the body. Some people will look for years and be
heart broken at not knowing. Try to let them know & move on
best of luck
