    On a smaller scale, we found a dead mouse in the front garden. We wondered if we should do something with it and I said, "nah, wait until it gets ripe and the foxes will take it." Sure enough, they did.

    When, however, one of the foxes dug up one of their previously killed and long-dead squirrels and left it ceremoniously laid out beside the front door, we put that in the bin...

    Round here if (or when) one of our chickens dies we throw it over the hedge in to the field and it's gone within a day. Fox, buzzard or kite will take it.

    It looks like we had a feral cat die on the side hill. I did notice an aroma yesterday but it could have been a toad (Crappo). As we’re getting ready to head out to a movie both dogs come in smelling to high heaven from dead critter.

    Tomorrow I get the pleasure of shoveling the remains into a bag as well as the soiled ground from decomposition and disposing of it

    I live in Seaside. My best advice is to never detonate a whale.
    Today, when marine mammals wash up on our beach, they are taken up the road to Ft. Stevens State Park and interred in a "graveyard" for 3 years. Then, they are exhumed after the flesh has rotted off the bones, cleaned, reanimated (reassembled), & sent to museums.

    Put it in some one else's garbage bin or bury it...

    I thank dead animals for their service to the world and fling them in the creek. Fish, crayfish, and turtles thank me.
