How maggots and eagles would destroy zombies

Whichever end of the animal coolness spectrum you prefer, there is only doom for the zombie menace. Embedded above, elimination by "a writhing, insatiable mess of maggots"; below, execution at eagle beakpoint.

"The clumsy undead wouldn't have the dexterity to pick off these decomposers, even if they could see or feel them," says naturalist David Mizejewski. "It would just be a matter of time. Stripped off all soft tissue, including brains, the zombies would be reduced to hollowed-out skeletons."

And on Eagles: "Carrion makes up a big portion of the diet of these huge raptors, and nothing intimidates them."

Animals eating the zombies is contingent upon the continued existence of animals. Support the National Wildlife Federation to make sure they're around when the next major outbreak occurs.
