Day188: What happened to the road kill I saw this morning?

Have you ever seen a dead animal on the road in the morning, then no trace of it in the evening. Wonder what happened to it? I went for a walk this morning and saw a dead squirrel in the middle of the road. Around lunch time, I saw these two buzzards fighting over the road kill. I noticed them circling because they were so big. I though at first it was a hawk just because of the size, then one landed and started to make lunch of the squirrel. The "red headed" buzzard tried to get a few bites, but the other buzzard defended his "catch" and ran the red headed buzzard off. It only took about 10 minutes and the only thing left of the squirrel was fuzz. The buzzard even carried off what was left of the skin.
