Have you heard about sky burial before?

I just ready an article it quite interesting and unique how other countries bury their loved ones.

Instead of taking steps to protect the body from animals the body is left exposed on a mountain to be scattered by scavengers. 
Just imagine.

In some cases after the skeleton is picked clean the bones are crushed and mixed into a paste with tsampa (mixture of barley flour, tea, and yak butter or milk.) this is left for crows, hawks and other animals to feed on breaking down the entire body minus the hair.(quora)

Sky burials have deep roots in Tibet, Mongolia, parts of China and India. I just cannot believe what I read, for me this is not right at all. This is true and it real since there are so many articles about it.

i am all for this, i have known about this for a very long time. we spend out lives taking from nature and animals, it is only fair we give back. when i am dead all that is left is meat, why burn or bury it when it can sustain an animal? i have already told my family after my death, my organs are donated, whatever meat is left should be fed to lions in a sanctuary.
