AbstractIn 2000, the European Union put sanitary policies into effect to prevent outbreaks of bovine spongiform encephalopathy. These policies dictated the removal of carcasses, which in turn threatened the conservation of carrion-eating birds such as vultures, eagles, and kites, as well as carnivorous mammals such as wolves and bears. After a long process, biodiversity conservation and public health initiatives have been integrated into a new policy that considers the natural foraging patterns of scavengers when allowing farmers to leave livestock carcasses in the field. However, the conservation objectives of this legislation now face a new threat: the lack of consistent criteria to designate scavenger feeding zones (SFZs), where fallen livestock can be left uncollected.
