Bon Appétit, I guess…

I went back to where I dumped that rotted-rat-infested water, with a mind to toss the carcasses farther downhill with a shovel and then pick up the bucket.

…and there was nothing left of the rats but a tuft of fur.

It’s true that a dead body doesn’t last long when left alone in the desert. I have some experience with that. But I do not have any notion of what sort of scavenger would have found these particular bodies enticing.

    Very hungry scavengers. 😉

    A lot of holes in the desert, and a lot of problems are buried in those holes.

    Late last summer I came across the carcass of a racoon, I think. Mostly bone and a bit of fur, so ‘coon was a guess. Went back a couple months later, and nada. None of the bones were around. Our scavengers are hungry!

    Vultures maybe? They seem to like their meat on the well-aged side.

To the stake with the heretic!
