Dead deer dumping a big problem

Multiple carcasses of dead deer are spread among beer bottles in a small clearing alongside Halso Mill Rd., an estimated nine miles outside of Greenville. The deer are likely kills collected from a number of separate hunting trips. The dumping of animal carcasses on rural roadside is a problem throughout Alabama, according to Captain Donald Herring, who is in charge of District VI in the Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Law Enforcement Division. District VI includes Butler County. Dumping dead animals is illegal and falls under the criminal littering provision of the Code of Alabama.
