These remains were close to a healthy herds' range. Most of the skeleton is there, though scattered about by scavengers. If the head wasn't taken as a trophy, and the haunches etc. not taken for venison it is unlikely to have been poached, which leaves the cause of death as either Natural Causes or, more likely, controlled culling. Can its age and health-i.e. its suitability for culling-be judged from the state of its teeth? It is a male, with antler prominences.
