Craig Dear editor:
I drive west on Highway 40 to Maybell everyday.
I don't enjoy the drive anymore. In fact, I dread it. I have a friend who told me several months ago that we'd be able to walk across Moffat County on the carcasses of dead animals. She was right.
I haven't been east lately, but I've been told it is pretty bad. How about Highway 13 north and south? It's a nightmare.
It got worse as the snow melted. The animals had just laid down and died under the bushes, on the side of hills and how about those poor creatures that are left tangled up in the fences.
If I were a tourist traveling through Moffat County - north, south, east or west, it would only take once, and I'd never pass this way again.
DOW? Division of what? Wildlife?
It looks more like death to me. If you want to fine somebody for killing the animals, how about the DOW official who left thousands of animals to starve to death (a bullet would have more humane) or those big trucks that travel 100 miles an hour down the road, smearing anything that gets in their way.
It's disgusting (thank you Maybell Colorado Department of Transportation for cleaning them up several times already).
Oh yes, the Moffat County scenery is lovely. It should start to smell pretty good, too.
DOW, get out there and clean up your mess.
