WARNING: This story includes graphic details of a research facility that studies how human bodies decay.

At a university on the western slope, they study how bodies decompose. They also discover how nature has a way of impeding science.

I caught this story from Newsweek. Apparently at Colorado Mesa University (CMU) outside of Grand Junction, they have a "body farm."

At body farms, the actual scientific term deceased bodies are often laid naked outside to study how they decompose. I hope you aren't eating at the moment.

Recently at the farm, though it's protected by a fence, two feral cats got in an started eating two male bodies.  Super.

According to the article, the cats 'preferred' eating the parts of the bodies that had the least amount of decomposing happening. Good to know that though they're feral, they're not monsters.
