States of Decomposition
The bodies wouldnt rot that fast. It would take a couple of years for that to happen. Also since zombies are always brought on by some magical or unexplained scientific reason who says they will rot at all. Those properties that brought the dead to life could keep them preserved as well.
: Warning: Nasty images of dead pig decomposition.
I have no clue what meat you buy that takes a couple of years to rot away.
Their bodies never heal. That means they are rotting. Rotting meat attracts bugs and all types of insects that eat dead meat, as well as bacteria (such as the ones already in our stomach) that grow on dead meat. Since they can't heal their bodies, they have no way of fighting off infections, nor do they swat flies away to stop them from laying eggs on their body.
They don't drink water, so their bodies are going to dehydrate. They have no active defense against the cold, so they'll freeze.
Animals, such as coyotes, bears, or even stray dogs suddenly become major threats to them, because on normal conditions they can harm a person. But now the person is slower, stupid, and can't heal from bites.
Also what makes zombies so scary is that the epidemic almost always seems to spread over night.
I admit, the way no movie ever attempts to show how the zombies first appear is kinda scary. It wouldn't be so scary if all the cementaries suddenly start sprouting zombies-which are immediately cut down then the police simply quarantine the cementary would it?
It shows how when something dramatic happens people begin to panick. It shows how in real life most people will only look out for themselves and forsake all others.
Yes. I know this.
Because I just
said it in my above post.
