Animals eating a deer pictures.

Recommended Posts

This deer was hit by a car. My dad dragged it into the woods and set 2 cameras on it. There were over 500 pictures of animals. Vultures, hawks, cats, foxes, skunks, opposums, coyote and some deer. One deer was a big buck, you can see the antlers on the bottom of the picture.

That's really cool! Always neat to see the variety of animals that show up to a carcass. Interesting that deer often show up to carcasses too. I have to think they get a whiff of deer scent and have to investigate.

 

Every time I hang a deer in my yard or have one in my truck sitting in the driveway, deer will come out of the woods from downwind to investigate it. They smell these deer and sometimes just deer skins without a doubt.

 

Couple times I've left foxes outside to thaw for skinning or such....and whenever I do that, I've had foxes come in to investigate.

 

None of these animals are regular visitors to my yard, so to me that just shows how amazing their noses are and how curious they are of other animals.

 

Thanks for sharing the "cycle of life".

Just the oranges, and the carcass. They were starting to rot so we took them with us. After 6 or 7 weeks it didn't look like anything actually ate them.

What's up with the oranges? What else is dumped in that area? Any corn? Could explain the buck.

 

Awesome Pix!!! How long did it take the animals to completely finish off both deer?

 

The first 2 wks there wasnt much action. It warmed up a few days and thats when it became very active. Skin and bones in less the 2 weeks.
