The Jawbone of an Ass

For the past three days, there has been an object laying in the road on the interchange where the 85 lets out onto the 101 Northbound. It looks like a bit of twisted gray rag and it's lying there in the rain. Today, traffic was unusually slow, so I got a good look at it as I inched past. It's the jawbone of some smallish, horsey animal. An ass? A mule? It's broken in half down the middle, and the halves are laying at almost right angles to each other, like two skeletal asses in profile looking in different directions.

How did it get there? Why is it still there?
