See what dines on your lost trophy.

Have you ever wondered what becomes of the deer you hit but can’t find?

The results show the variety of animals that feed on a carcass and how such an occasion effects nearly an entire ecosystem.

Fair warning: While incredibly interesting, given the subject matter, this clip is not for the faint of heart. 

No one said the circle of life was pretty.
