Mass animal skeletons found, what caused this?

7 years ago

My fiance, two friends, and I were hiking in an old abandoned camp grounds in Kendall county. We noticed a whole ribcage of a deer off trail, then noticed more bones. We followed the bones for probably about 50ft and there were skeletons everywhere placed all throughout the area. Some still had fur on them so idk if some were more recent. We probably found over 20 skeletons before we decided we should probably leave. Btw there were multiple species, not all deer. Could this be like a coyote feeding ground? Maybe hunters? Or roadkill dropoff? I'm very curious because it was quite strange.
