How people in Tibet cut up the dead and feed them to the vultures

In Tibet the ground is hard and trees are scarce, so burning bodies of dead people is not an option. What do you do then? Feed them to the vultures, of course!

The trained "undertakers" cut up the bodies and the vultures can hardly wait to get to the meat. Wikipedia has pictures too, but consider yourself warned, they are quite graphic. It's interesting nevertheless.
