So probably there was this dead buffalo on NH5 for more than 24 hours lying unattended or might be two buffaloes dead in two consecutive days. Even i did see one dead buffalo on the NH5 near C'pet.

God knows when these cattle raisers learn to avoid using the high speed NHs. After all they let these poor creatures come and die on the high speed corridors. I saw 4 animals (3 Buffaloes and one goat) along my way to Chirala, Prakassam, AP.

He meant the total distance for a return trip, not one way.
