Angry Found a body dump today...

Pulled over at a rural RR crossing to let the puppy "recycle" her water bowl this a.m.
By the signal box, not 10 ft from the asphalt were 7 deer, intact but for depredation... & the antlers which had been, literally, hacked off. Two looked to be spikes, well under 100 lbs.

WTF?!

What sort of a person does this?

Of course not always, but sometimes farmers will shoot as many deer as they can to keep them from being around eating their crops. They dump them elsewhere because they don't want to draw predators into their property either.

No, not hit by a train as they were fresh enough that bullet wounds were easily visible as were the tire/boot tracks frozen in the mud.
I found something similar several years ago here on state land- 2 nice bucks sans antlers, otherwise totally intact, stuffed behind a large rock at the parking area.
Sad, especially since we have an active venison donation program.

Too lazy to take them to a "Hunters for the Hungry" program? In Michigan, they would be ticketed for dumping illegally.
