[quote=""MLE""]Which probably explains why I couldn't find it on the New York Times site! Thanks BB, but it is rather funny.

And Sonjamarie, you are right. I discovered one of my older animals dead in the pasture two days after the fact, and even in winter, he didn't smell nice.

I guess whoever invented this story had never actually been around a five-days-dead body. Geesh, you'd think he'd at least have gotten a whiff of a pot roast that had been in the 'fridge too long.[/quote]

Several years ago, a deer died on our front lawn. It must have been hit by a car and managed to get off the road. Oh my, the smell was awful even on the first day. It seems in New Jersey that the local police do not remove dead deer, the state does and it took them several days to do so. Ugh!!!
