I completely anticipated to see eagles, vultures or condors on this publish.
Right here in Finland, pig carcasses had been (and maybe nonetheless are?) used to offer endangered white-tailed eagles a meals supply that’s comparatively freed from environmental air pollution. The eagles had been first pushed to close extinction by human persecution, after which in late twentieth century they suffered from pollution – the type of long-living chemical substances that accumulate in prime predators and cut back their fertility. The white-tailed eagle is now making a very good restoration.
Pig and cow carcasses are additionally utilized in rural areas to draw bears, wolves and wolverines for nature photographers and safari vacationers. By the way, only a couple weeks in the past I joked to my dad that he might strive utilizing pig carcasses (fairly than suet balls) within the yard to see if any animals extra fascinating than small birds and squirrels would present up.
