Usually - unless this happened 50 years ago before the eradication of Screw worms. Then there is this:Don't they only eat the dead tissue? Sounds like a symbiotic relationship to me.

Had a habitual car burglar we all knew get arrested for related warrants by the evening shift. He went by the hospital first because he had surgery on his feet to remove toes on both feet iirc, well that was a month ago and he likely hadn't removed his shoes since then and his feet were rotting away. The evening shift had to go in, so I had to go wait with him. He ended up being magistrated in the hospital since he was going to be there a few days. I sat in the hall where I could see him while I waited for the slow wheels of justice to turn, but even out there the stench was powerful.The dry, black gangrene that just breaks off isn't bad. The wet that drains the stuff that looks like vanilla pudding can get funky. The green drainage has its own special aroma.
This would be my choice
