Carcass visitors

I hauled this road-killed fawn, a female, into the ravine the week before Christmas. It rained the next two days.

A gray fox found it on the third day, and opened the gut. It fed on abdominal muscle and then the haunch.

On day 5, the winter solstice, this buck paused to sniff at 12:45 AM, leaving this one image.

I'll post the other visitors, and the gray fox, during the next few days.

Happy New Year, folks.
