Interesting concept, and I have to say it makes more sense than our mealy-mouthed, wasteful, ridiculously overpriced way of doing things. Besides, vultures have to eat, too.

The pictures are graphic, to say the least, so if you're not up to dealing with cold hard reality and end up losing your breakfast, don't bitch at me.
