Dead Zebra in Landscape

Caption: To test their hypothesis, researchers found seven zebra and one wildebeest that had just died, in the wild, from anthrax infection. All of the carcasses were left where they fell, but four were protected from scavengers by electrified cage exclosures. The other four were left completely open to the elements.
