I came across this amazing time lapse video produced by the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife, it depicts a deceased female elk from the Mt. Saint Helen’s elk herd study being a food source for several animal species.

While the video is very graphic it shows how nothing goes to waste in nature! I think I was most surprised by how little the cougar ate...

  • It shows the elk body parts and the decomposition process, so viewer discretion is advised.
