Thread: What should a land owner do if they find a dead deer?

  1. #1

    What should a land owner do if they find a dead deer?

    OK so a land owner finds a deer carass on their land

    What are their responsabuilities when dealing with the carcass?

    Do they have to get it examined?

    What steps do they have to take if they wish to dispose of it?

    I ask because I am doing an article on deer managment for small woodland owners

    As a wild animal, he has no obligation to do anything, why are you writing a article if you don,t know the answers, surely it should be written by someone who knows the answers

    As a wild animal he has no responsibility what so ever, deer belong to no one (unless park or farmed deer) a landowner merely has the right to cull them when they are on his land, he may have some responsibllity regarding population numbers and damage to neighbours but that is a different matter and not relevant to this post.

    If you were always required to know the answer to everything before writing an article, and not allowed to do any research, newspapers would be pretty empty...

    Leave the carcase for nature to dispose of.

    OK let me rephrase

    I have a 100kg bloated stinking carcus on my main ride?

    I know I can bring in a digger and bury it in or near the location it died but how else could I dispoe of it and what would be the implication? I am asuming it would have to go to an authorised site but i can find DEFRA info on Cat 3 food waste no problem but am strugling to find out more on Cat 2 waste

    You can bury it provided its not near a water course or you can leave it for nature to dispose of,doubt very much if DEFRA
    would be interested.

    Waste can be slightly complacted , if you are a recreational stalker there is nothing to stop you putting a carcass or parts there of in your household bin, if you are a business a game dealer for example you need red bins and a special collection
    believe it goes to be incinerated but I do wonder as road kill is collected by the council and goes straight to landfill.
