Researchers at the Forensic Anthropology Research Facility in San Marcos, Texas set up a trail camera over a decomposing human body.
What they found was extraordinary:
Researchers studying how scavengers consume human remains were astounded when they spotted a deer feasting on a body!
Having placed a body in a forested area, the researchers set up a camera system to capture any activity surrounding the remains.
On two separate occasions, different deer were photographed snacking on the remains, including a rather amusing image where a guilty-looking deer can be seen with a human rib sticking out of its mouth!
