E.M. Morrow. 
Someone has left the carcass of a deceased Cow in this cemetery. The vultures paid their visit and were roosting on the stones as they fed on the carcass leaving these stones in a mess and potentially medically harmful to humans. By the time I visited there in Dec to help Terina with the photography the vultures had left and this stone was washed clean by rainwater, but much of the carcass was still there.
