Got road kill? Hereís how to get the poor guy carted away
People usually refer to the animals struck by cars and left dead on the highway as road kill.
And while the unlucky animal may not be moving anymore of its own volition, many people would still like to see the little critter moved out of plain sight.
St. Charles Parish spokesman Steve Sirmon says it depends on where the animal lies as to whether it can be disposed of by the parish or not.
State highways are under the jurisdiction of the Department of Transportation, but local roads are not a problem he said.
And regardless if it's a state operated or local street, Sirmon said if someone does contact he parish seeking to have a dead animal removed from the street, they will make sure the message gets to the proper channels.
"No matter where it is we'll get someone to pick it up," Sirmon said.
"Most of what I see is on state highways, though."
