Vying for food? Lots here, cattle carcasses in a field, dumped way back of the abbatoir at a local cattle farm. Just a doc shot as it was maybe 400 yards away.

Those look like ravens to me; then again, I'm even farther away than 400 metres.

Was wondering what I was looking at. Thought they were baskets at first. Also had to look up abbattior. Learning everyday.

Yep, crows, ravens, likely some of each.

Yea, kinda gross if you ask me. I wouldn't make a good farmer.

Most "farms" would not have anything even beginning to resemble that on it's premises..
Quite a sight!

When I first opening the thread I thought I was looking at 1970's Cambodia.. sorry but I';m not kidding.

Yes, WOW, apparently regulations do differ from one area to another. I can see this image finding it's way to a courtroom where I live.
Is this a year round practice or only during winter months?
I'm also puzzled on their butchering practices that would leave behind a scene like this one, interesting.

I have never seen him do it this way before. But in the past years, he has dumped entrails out into a field right beside the road for eagles in the winter time only, when it is frozen. I wonder if maybe he's planning on burying this bunch of bones.

Looks like the pickens are starting to thin out a bit, that would be strange for someone like me never seeing something like this I would have to ask permission to plant a nice perch nearby lol.

Generally this farmer is very courteous and open with photographers, and is known in the community as encouraging eagles to hang out at his farm. He invited me to drive right into a back field he has on another road where he sometimes dumps offal. He has, or had, one juvenile eagle trained to swoop in and grab a kidney or something when he threw it up in the air over his head.

There used to be a field near me like this. Cattle farmer would have 25 or so cows butchered and would have the bones put in an area of his property not visible to the public. I had permission to hunt the property, so he told me about it. Saw a lot of crows there and sometimes a hungry Red-tailed hawk, but no eagles.
