Are you serious here? Although they don't prefer carrion, they eat it if hungry enough.


Wish I had more time to trap....

I am serious. I have another serious question. What if I have a carcass pile with lead in it. lead pellets, lead .22 ammo in the carrion. I certainly don't want to harm predators coming into a pile of remains...


Just a weekend trapper...

Lead might just make them retarded. Then they would be easier to catch. They are not going to eat anything that will harm them.

Some raptor centers and wildlife rehab outfits will take some carcasses to feed the animals in their facilities. Could be worth checking with any in your area.

Take them down to the inner city for the kids to play with.
I found out they can have some great fun with skinned carcasses.

Our local Audubon Center won't feed anything that has been shot to the raptors.

I've tossed a bunch under the manure pile. It's hot under there and it cooks them down quick.
I've also buried a bunch with a 3 pt. auger. It's fast and effective but the manure pile is easier.

I throw mine back side of our land. I drop the beavers off at night in the neighbors drive way. Makes good dog food. Saves the dogs from having to drag them so far. grin

Over the carcass pour powdered lime and cover with wood chips.

That is a very fast way to get rid of the carcass. For awhile the DOT was doing that with roadkilled deer instead of picking them up. They looked like graves along the highway. Maybe that is why they stopped.
