Cornelius Snarlington, Forensic Deer

The camera caught a glimpse of a young white-tailed deer standing near the skeleton with a human rib bone in its mouth.

Then it happened again on January 13 -- the camera caught a deer with another rib sticking out of its mouth like a cigar. It's not clear whether it was the same deer in both cases, but it's certainly possible first one came back for seconds.

This is the first known evidence of a deer scavenging human bones, and the authors published their findings in the Journal of Forensic Sciences.

Previously, previously, previously.
