Aging Bull

Update: About three weeks ago we brought you this photo we took of some dead bulls lying on the side of the highway.


In case you were wondering what a pair of dead bulls looks like after an additional three weeks in the Querétaro sun, it's basically this:


Like two giant meat balloons slowly leaking air.

Given the state's love of pointless make-work projects, we have no idea why they can't put together a 12-man Taurine Carcass Removal Squad and drag these things out to a landfill before they infect the entire city with anthrax.

It looks as though someone threw "cal" on the bulls. I've seen this before with other dead animals on the side of the road. Do you know how this helps?

I think it makes them easier for drivers to see as they're whizzing around the curve at night with a drink in one hand and baby on their lap.

Here in Wisconsin the DNR has decided to take the organic approach to deer kills on the road and leave the carcasses in the ditch to decompose naturally. Crows are happy, but can't say it adds to asthetics.

Looks like you can have a nifty bleached cow skull to decorate your wall in say, 6 months or so.

The "cal" actually helps to keep it safe to everybody arround, without the need to remove the body.

Burro Hall, you are tooooo funny! :) You have brought a smile to my face after a difficult morning, thank you.

It's why we exist. Looks like our work here is done, then...

As long as they're not blocking traffic, what's the problem? Vultures have to live too.

In the interest of aesthetics, the proposed Taurine Carcass Removal Squad could move them back a *little* from the edge of the highway, maybe even saving the life of an odd vulture here and there?

I never thought a picture of dead animals on the road would make me laugh!

What a waste of beef!

Strange things happen when you hang out here.

They're funny because they're not cute.

I amazed that nobody took the bodies when just died to make a huge party, free meat!!!

It looks like they just poured lime powder on top. That would work...
