Deer carcasses being dumped in rural Shiawassee County

Some residents of rural Shiawassee County are dealing with an unusual wildlife problem.

People keep dumping deer carcasses on their roads.

Rick and Dawn Lucas moved into their Bennington Township home three years ago.

They counted 17 dead deer that were left within a hundred yards of their property last year.

The Lucases have called the state police, the sheriff's office and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

They have been promised that their road would be patrolled more regularly but the couple haven't noticed an increase in patrols.

Making the problem more difficult is the dwindling number of conservation officers that the DNR has around the state.
