We are surrounded by wildlife, like pigeons and squirrels, all the time. Sadly, all those animals eventually die, but why don't we see carcasses on the street? Where do they go?

We're conducting a survey of our viewers! If you have time, please give us feedback:

    There was a small, dead finch outside my door once, with no signs of attack or injury. It probably just ... died... but I sobbed and sobbed the whole time I was disposing of it, and I cried for about three hours afterwards. I love birds... I love animals in general. It was really hard for me to take care of that, so I am grateful to nature for keeping me blissfully unawares most days. (Fun story: I once wanted to be a vet, but then I realized I would regularly see animals die. I definitely do not have the stomach--or heart--for that line of work.)

    So the question is not "Where Are All the Dead Animals?" but "Where is all the animal poop?"

    Climate change is a liberal lie. And you are an alt-left liberal propaganda site, as its obvious you cant talk about *anything* without weaseling some leftist agenda into it.

    But Toxins from things like algae blooms are also caused by humans most times because our god damn fertilizers wash into the rivers which feed into the ocean which causes the algae to grow like crazy.

    What do you mean *WHERE* ? They fuckin decompose! This is... uh... either 5th or 6th grade science... anyways, ITS SO SIMPLE HOW DO YOU NOT KNOW THIS ALREADY?! Where do you think nutrients from plants come from? Decomposing carcasses that's where. Where do nutrients for animals come from? The plants! Life doesn't just come out of no where, its a cycle. *I wasn't expecting people not to know this, sorry.*
