SOUTHERN UTAH — Utah biologists studying carnivores found a piece of recycled roadkill makes for a popular attraction.

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources posted a video Monday showing several carnivores stopping in for a bite.

Biologists wired “some roadkill deer legs to an aspen tree as bait” and then set up a camera to capture the activity.

The video is a gallery of still images, which show a variety of hungry animals visiting the site in Utah’s southeastern region.
