The bones continue to produce

A small number of black bears were by far the most common visitor, staying for extended periods of time and savaging on the remains of the moose. The bones provide good marrow and the stomach contents are eaten as the bacteria that are consumed provide a means for the black bear to efficiently digest plants. Bears also consume deer and moose droppings to pick up the same bacteria. The bears prefer to eat meat that has been sitting for a number of days as it is easier to tear, eat, and digest.
