Disgusting Hoard of Maggots Finish Off a Moose Carcass in 3 Days

You’re going to be absolutely mesmerized by these maggots eating a moose carcass.

Sometimes, nature has a way of making us squeamish.

We want to warn you well ahead of time, that this video may be unnerving and upsetting to some people, especially younger viewers. It’s also an incredibly fascinating look at what Mother Nature’s recycling committee can do when they’re given a chance to go to work.

In this case, a Live Leak video shares the footage of a dead moose found by a woman in Norway. What she stumbled upon might be the largest colony of maggots we’ve ever seen.

Be forewarned, this is pretty gross.

Now that it’s over, can you honestly say you watched the whole thing? Because the ending might be the best part, when you can actually see the bones, including the clearly defined jaw and ribs, of the moose.

It’s incredible what can happen to a big game animal after it dies when nature is allowed to take its course.
