Do dead animals count?

    Sorry if this is a duplicate - couldn't find this question elsewhere.

    I saw what looked like a fraction of a zebra, so counted it as one that was resting (parrot style), The discussion photo confirmed it was leftovers from a kill.

    Was this the right thing to do, or should we not count dead things (given that there's no 'dead' button in the behaviours section)?

    If the dead critter is big enough and intact enough to tell what it is, go ahead and record it. We'll be able to take a closer look at images with multiple species and "interacting" to understand where kills are happening.
