    Contact your state agricultural department. They should be able to point you in the right direction.

    Do you have a college of veterinary medicine? That is where we send ours.

    I am not sure. I know the colleges close to me are University of South Florida, University of Tampa and HCC. Those are the only colleges I can remember.

    So do I send them a email or something and ask them if they will do a autopsy?

    Did you find the site of the University of Florida (gators)? Or was the website I was looking at was the University of South Florida (bulls)?
