Last night on Netflix I watched the first part of an old National Geographic show, Biography of a Corpse. It's about what some call "body farms," where anthropologists/doctors study various things about decomposing human bodies left in the open/outdoors. I found it quite fascinating, but it's not for the squeamish as the decomposition is shown in fairly graphic detail (maggots devouring a head, bugs crawling in and out of the dead person's mouth and nose, stripping skin/etc. off a body so that only the bones remain)
Real men eat chili while watching.
I don't think it would bother me much. Not that we are animals, but I am exposed to dead animal corpses all the time. Often parts of dead animals with maggots all over.
Chickens love maggots btw.
I've even put maggot meat in buckets with little holes drilled in the bottom and hung them up high. Flies land on the meat and lay eggs. The maggots hatch, grow, and soon enough most will fall through the holes in the buckets.
The chickens/turkeys gobble them up.
Yeah I guess seeing it on a human would be somewhat yuck - but I've seen it on cow heads with POUNDS of maggots etc.
