Quite and incredible corpse. The gaping mouth really adds to the horror.

I'm looking at this and shaking my head, wondering how long it's been there. That its hide seems to be mostly intact would indicate a natural death, though the presence of flesh upon the lower legs and the lack thereof elsewhere would likewise indicate something took a few nibbles. I dunno, I'm no taxidermist or veterinarian, just someone who's half-awake. :D Really great find, though.

Plenty of birds and animals to take a nibble. In the winter though that area is probably under deep snow for several months, so it would have been preserved....
