The carrion bit was mentioned on Wikipedia, and sounded logical to me. Why not grab the free meal?
But I googled a bit, and came up with these:
What does it eat?(source)
Aardwolves truly are specialists. They are nocturnal insectivores with highly specialized diets of harvester termites. These termites come out in late afternoon to evening because they are unable to tolerate light. During that time, aardwolves collect these termites with their long, sticky, well-adapted tongue. In fact, their cheek teeth are reduced to few simple pegs since they are not needed to catch the termites. Don't be mistaken however, they have relatively sharp canines that can certainly inflict damage. An aardwolf may consume up to 200,000 termites in a single night. Hence, they are very important in controlling these insects. During lean seasons, aardwolves feed on other insects and larvae dug out of the ground with the help of their large ears and acute hearing.
The aardwolf is a carnivore, but is called an "incomplete carnivore" because it is an insectivore. Its typical diet is Harvester termites (Trinervi termites), insect larvae, and occasionally eggs of ground nesting birds.
On an average night, an aardwolf can consume anywhere from 200,000 to 300,000 termites. The termites usually come out in dense columns, so all the aardwolf has to do is lap up as many of them as it wants to eat.
The aardwolf's prey is termites, insect larvae, and eggs of ground nesting birds. It usually eats termites, but occasionally, it will find some carrion that the hyenas have killed, or a small rodent to eat.
So yes or no? I don't know....
