Rotting deer carcasses in yard raise stink

Hundreds of rotting deer carcasses in a southwestern Pennsylvania yard are causing a stink among the neighbors. Randy Good of North Buffalo Township has a contract with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to remove the animal carcasses from roads in five counties.

Good says he has been picking up 50 to 100 carcasses a day. To cope with demand, he has been dumping a few hundred at a time in his yard. He says weekend landfill closures and a broken truck have worsened the backlog.

Neighbors a half-mile away say they have resorted to burning candles in their homes to mask the stench. Good says he has gotten a trash container that will help, but it will take a week or two to remove them all.
