Some zoos receive gifts of roadkill from their state’s DOT. This allows them to feed their animals at a lower cost while also giving the animals a wider variety of meat and stimulation. I was fortunate enough to see a wolf pack devour a deer this summer.
However, I know that many of you don’t want to be seeing that, so here is a photo of a wolf that needed a drink after eating a bit of deer.
If you want to see the whole set, follow the photo link through to Flickr.
