256. Walk On By?

Could someone please clean up the dead carcasses on the roads?!!?!

I've seen half a dozen in the past few days, at least one fresh each day and the others in varying stages of decomposition.

Who do we call? What government agency handles this?

Does no one notice? This is unmerciful (poor animals), unsanitary (and odorous), not to mention bad for tourism (and worse for my daughter's kind heart).

If we can't do the simple things like this, how in the world do we think we can manage something like power or safety or education?

The local government has washed their hands of this problem.

How can they do that? Who else would, could, or should take care of it?

Public Works? The Mayor?

Probably, sigh, would take a law since nobody would volunteer for the job.

DPS used to remove the dead animals as they are traffic hazards. From about 2000-2002, they kept the roadways pretty clean. They seem to have stopped doing this. I've seen cops swerve right around large bloated dogs right smack in the road.. and keep on going.

I mentioned this on a recent post on my blog. It seems our department of public safety seems to veer away from a variety of public safety work that requires you to 1) Sweat, 2) Stand, 3)Walk, and 4)Get a little dirty.

Perhaps we can pile them up in front of the Mayor or Governor's office.

I would like to see a dead animal of the day in the newspapers until someone takes action.
