Agents from the Missouri Department of Conservation are asking hunters not to dump deer carcasses.

In Missouri, a person commits the offense of unlawful disposing of a dead animal when they knowingly place or cause to be placed the carcass or offal of any dead animal into any well, spring, brook, branch, creek, pond, or lake; or on any public road or highway, river, stream, or watercourse or upon premises not their own for the purpose of annoying another or others.

Unlawfully disposing of a dead animal is a class C misdemeanor.

MDC says hunters, taxidermists, meat processors, and others can help slow the spread of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) by properly handling deer parts.

To report poaching, or the illegal dumping of a deer carcass, contact your local Conservation Agent or call the Operation Game Thief hotline at 1-800-392-1111.
