We have to use our resources to remove the carcasses rather than doing productive work on the county’s roads and bridges. And, that’s at a big cost to the county.”Oliver said the illegal dumping of deer carcasses is either a complete disregard for people and the environment or just plain laziness.Dumping deer carcasses on public property is illegal.Oliver said hunters are urged to keep that in mind during the last days of deer season and respond as good sportsmen. Print Article Dwight Senn, Pike County Road Department assistant construction supervisor, checked out a site Wednesday where seven deer carcasses had been dumped. At least 15 deer carcasses had been dumped at three sites on Burned Out Bridge Road. The removal of deer carcasses requires county road department resources that could be used in a more productive way, officials say. (Photo/Jaine Treadwell)Whoever penned the song, “Did You Feed My Cow” with the repetitious “Did the buzzards come?” surely had visited Pike County during deer season.Around this time of year, the buzzards do come to feed on the carcasses of the deer that have been harvested and then thrown along the roadways, and even in creeks, after the desired meat has been taken.The Pike County Road Department was busy Wednesday morning removing deer carcasses from the roadways and burying them in a pit. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day The carcasses had been torn open by buzzards and other animals and the bones were scattered on the road.“This is not the only place this is happening,” Senn said. “It’s all over the county. It’s bad enough when the carcasses are left on the roads, but when they are thrown in the creeks where nothing can get to them, that’s even worse.”As deer season draws to a close, more hunters are in the woods and the potential for a larger harvest increases. Those deer have to be disposed of some way and it’s up to the hunters to make sure it is done legally.Russell Oliver, county engineer, said the dumping of deer carcasses is a public health hazard. Published 9:40 pm Wednesday, January 26, 2011 Dwight Senn, road department assistant construction supervisor, said every tree branch along Burned Out Bridge Road had a buzzard.“The sky and trees have been filled with buzzards,” Senn said. “There are three dump sites on this road and with at least 15 deer carcasses. Whoever left them took the meat they wanted and dumped the rest. Some of the carcasses had only the backstrap gone. It’s a mess and the odor is awful.”The deer were piled on top of each other at one dumpsite making it difficult to determine the exact number of carcasses.
