First off, this is NOT an April Fools joke, I'd never joke about anything like this, but I have a question for you guys, especially those who live in more rural areas. Do you have any trouble with people dumping their junk on your land, and what does the local government do about it? I'm asking for this reason, my hubby and I are VERY ticked off right now. We own 25 acres of land about 3 miles from the city limits of town, and we've always had a problem with people dumping stuff, just 'cause we're at the end of the road and are gone all day. (Partly why I have so many feral cats). Well, yesterday, someone hit a new low, I drove home late yesterday evening, and halfway down our private driveway in a little clearing, someone had been kind enough to drop off two dead calves !!! Grr #1. Called the County sherriff, who told us to call the county commissioner in our area this morning. Called him, the city landfill, and a myriad of other agencies and such, and can't get anyone to do a darn thing about it, the landfill won't even accept the bodies ! Grr #2 ! If we leave them there, in a day or so the stink will be unbearable, so my hub has gone home to either bury them or figure out some way of getting rid of them. Sigh, sorry 'bout this, but I had to get it off my chest this morning before I screamed !
