Dead Animals

We were hiking and came across a dead animal' s remains and we took some of the skeleton for a project, but someone said we could catch a sickness from ' playing'  with dead animals? What is this and how can we prevent it?

Hallo Eddy
If the animal died of a bacterial infection you may be infected by the germs when you handle it, but if you washed your hands well after touching it, or handled it with gloves it should not be a problem.
