Road Kill Cemetery
Niagara on the Lake wants to fast track a policy on the disposal of dead animals for the old town.
Town Councillor Martin Mazza is hoping to have something in place before the summer.
Mazza's motion to address road kill dumping was approved by council last week.
He says hundreds of dead animals are piled on top of each other, not buried properly, which could lead to health and safety risks for residents.
Mazza wants his policy to include amendments for burial during colder weather when the ground is frozen.
The call came following the discovery of hundreds of dead animals rotting on town property where the QEW meets Glendale Avenue.
The Ministry of Transportation had hired a company to collect and dispose of the road kill.
A lost dog from St. Catharines found dumped at the site led to the discovery of this road kill open graveyard.
