Dead Things in Ecuador

Coming from Vancouver Canada, there's a morbid fascination with the "road kill" that you can see in Ecuador.



Mouse & Beetle

Pig in the River

Blackbird on the Road



Unknown in River

? on the bank of River

Rat on Road

This one really bothered us for awhile because it looked so much like our our own dog

Half Eaten Chick

Dog in a Bag

Pigeon Completely Squashed Flat on Road

Poor Sweet Dead Bird

Black Bird

There was a guy with a Labrador type dog, throwing sticks at this carcass in the river, trying to get the dog to go out to it. The dog had no intention of leaping into the cold water and doing that -- and the guy finally gave up and they both walked away. An hour later, I went back to see what was happening and the carcass was gone.

Flattened Pigeon

Maybe a very squished Rat?

This was in a public park, not far from a children's' swing set, etc.

We wonder how long the poor thing took to get into this condition.

Looks like someone was probably wondering where their little dog was though.

Poor Little Birdie

Always fond of cats, this one disturbed us as the eyes were still quite fresh looking.

This rat certainly doesn't look as healthy as the rat above (not the squished one)

And another poor cat found on the meridian of a city road-way.

Nice and plump, lying in the middle of a grassy path - we wonder what killed this one?

Pushed from the Nest?

Pidgeon all laid out

Found this poor dog on one of our mini-hikes in the Cajas near Cuenca.

This poor cat was laid out in a giant hole in a tree.

And just knew some Ecuadorian Family was going to be extremely upset when they realized their precious was not coming home.

Dead rooster on the side of a dirt road. Couldn't seem to get the picture to look as colourful as it really did. Poor thing. Somewhat surprised the "street dogs" that live in that area hadn't tested it out yet for lunch.

This was a horse skeleton. I knew this for sure because it still had its shoes on.
