These aren't fresh kills either, since the carcass is sun baked and flat. A similarly unsightly decomposed deer was on the side of I-90, visible to everyone, when I came back to Madison.
This was Scott Walker's plan by design way back in April 2015:
Governor Scott Walker doesn't want the state to pay to remove deer carcasses along state highways, which means counties could have to foot the bill. Last year the DNR removed nearly 24,000 deer carcasses from state highways across Wisconsin.Walker just posted the following budget veto, because thanks to tax cuts, we don't have enough money to fund removal of these disease spreading carcasses:
The Governor's proposed budget eliminates$700,000 a year for the DNR to remove the carcasses statewide. Under the proposal, responsibility for clearing the deer would fall to whatever government agency is in charge of the roadway. Or they may be left uncollected. The nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau cautions, "dead and decaying deer on the roadside are unsightly ad can dampen Wisconsin's reputation as a tourist destination."
