Letters: Dispose of carcass properly

Dead animals should not be left to rot in rural areas around Sooke

On November 15 at approximately 9 a.m. I was walking my dogs up Tregear Road when I noticed one of my dogs pawing and acting kind of funny at something.  I went and had a look and to my surprise and disgust, there was a deer that had been shot, gutted and skinned laying there in broad view. Whoever did this is very cruel and ignorant for doing this to such a innocent animal.

On top of leaving this animal exposed, they cut off his skinned hind leg and propped it up against a rock and they also took the horns off of this animal. This is not a dumping grounds for this type of behaviour.  There are certain places to take this and dispose of it properly.

What a waste of a good animal. At least you could of kept it at home, hung it up properly and donated the good meat to the food bank, if all you wanted from this animal was its horns.  I’m sure the food bank could of put the meat to good use as they do have freezers and fridges to store meat in.

This has been done quite recently as there are no animal bite marks or turkey vulture marks present.

When I saw this, I notified our new neighbours, she told me that her dog found it also maybe a day or two ago. This is very disgusting,  unsanitary, and unhealthy for people to see.

What sick demented person would do this?  Someone who doesn’t give a damn of where they dump their dead animals. How would you like it if I and everybody else from Sooke came and dumped our dead animals on your property? Guess it wouldn’t bother you as you don’t seem to care as to where you dump your dead animals. Have some respect for other people’s property.

I couldn’t figure out what this horrible smell was until I saw this animal on November 15.
