Bald Eagle
Roadkilled deer and other wildlife subsidize crows, ravens, vultures, and eagles. These birds seem to benefit, but when crow populations get out of balance with other wildlife, they take a higher number of eggs and nestlings from songbirds to feed their own nestlings. And one of the major causes of eagle mortality is auto collisions when they're approaching or flying off from a roadkill.

  1. It makes sense that roadkill should be properly disposed off because they present a hazard to not only eagle population but also the population of other birds.
