Dead deer keeps other wildlife alive


This 31 August 2016 video is from the Kuinderbos forest in Flevoland province in the Netherlands. It shows a dead roe deer, on which various insect species and other scavenging animals feed.

Wildlife warden Harco Bergman brings also other animals which have been killed by traffic accidents to this spot, like a heron and a beech marten. This way, people can see how animals after their death contribute to keeping other wildlife alive.
