    Maybe they were accustomed to unearthing fresh diggings to locate where citizens (or opposing army I suppose) hurriedly hid things in advance of the army's approach.
    Leaving the mule partially exposed gave the next passers through a "heads up" on the situation.
    Vs being inspired to unearth fresh diggings in case there was something of value. (?)

    yea, with a fresh mind this morning I got the same impression.
    of course the smart person burying a ten thousand dollar cache
    may have killed a mule to top off their valuables in the first place.
    and maybe some even thought that

    If you want to keep something buried, not sure it's a good idea
    to bury it under a dead animal carcass. Every predator around
    is going to have a go at that mule meat, guts and every bit
    of chow on the bones, then others will even go for the bones.

    In the process, they're gonna be digging all around that carcass
    looking for every scrap, so if'n you're going to bury something,
    be sure to bury it deep.
