Roadkill Collector’s Backyard Stench Offends Neighbors

The stench emanating from Randy Good’s backyard is enough that neighbors up to a half mile away are said to have resorted to using candles to mask the smell. Little wonder, Good has a contract with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation that sees him remove dead animal carcasses from roads.

Good claims to remove between 50 and 100 carcasses everyday, many of which are deer; however, weekend landfill closures and a broken truck have meant that a few hundred carcasses at a time have been going to the back of his southwestern Pennsylvania home for temporary storage.

Good is aiming to work through the backlog and says that he now has a trash container that should help to contain some of the smell, but it will be at least a week or two before they are all removed.
