For some reason the video wont embed in the post ?
She is eating half a BBQ chicken carcass, ordinarily I wouldn't feed her stuff like that but they are big carrion eaters in the wild so it doesn't hurt every now and then. She did rip it apart and eat most of it in the end.

In the wild they eat anything they can fit in their mouths, they are absolute dustbins. Yes this one is a captive animal.

Absolutely, they will never give up any food, they always manage to get it down somehow.
