Disposing of deer waste on roads illegal

Published 12:00 am Sunday, December 13, 2009

Well, it’s that time of year again — cool morning air, beautiful fall foliage, geese flying south for the winter and deer guts, hides and heads laying on the side of the road.

Isn’t it a beautiful sight to see all those buzzards perched on the bridge waiting on the feast that some thoughtless deer hunter has left for them; plus, what they don’t eat pollutes the stream.

If those hunters don’t throw it in the creek, they just dump it on the side of the road. But some are thoughtful enough to trespass and dump on private property.

It seems to me that these hunters spend a lot of time and money to post and patrol their property to keep people off, but they will trespass and dump their deer guts on someone else’s property. Go figure. Not only is it against the law to trespass, but it also against the law to dispose of deer waste on the side of the road.

Most hunters have access to several hundred acres of land, surely they can find a hole on this property to dispose of this deer waste.

Between deer guts, paper, beer cans and any other trash, the roads in our area look really bad. Lets help keep our state clean.

I know you trash chunkers who read this really don’t care, or you would not throw trash and guts out to start with.
