When you reinstall you serpentine belt did you inspect it for damaged? It is possible that your serpentine belt is damaged when the incident with the animal occur. Or the tensioner/pulleys in your belt is damaged because you've mention that the serpentine is off when you open the hood. Serpentine belts have specific tension so it won't come off easily.
