I think it depends on how long it’s been dead. A dead moose is probably worse than a dead skunk after a while, because the skunk’s carcass is eventually flattened and worn away by the truck tires. However, the moose carcass will not remain in the road; if it is knocked into the ditch and goes unnoticed for a while, it’s certainly going to stink pretty badly after a few days. The duration would depend on the scavenger population – coyotes and the like – which has been on the decline over the years.

You can smell a bear coming from about 3 miles away.

Before I could answer that, I would have to smell all the animals (is it necessary to add “on earth”?). Are there any other choices?

I think it depends upon what deodorant they use.
