Road Repair Crew Paves Over Dead Deer

August 23, 1996| Associated Press

ANDREAS, Pa. — Contract workers repairing a stretch of roadway paved straight over a dead deer that one official says was hard to miss.

A gooey spread of oil and rocks covers the deer's head, neck and shoulders along Route 895.

"I never saw anything like that before in my life," said Keith Billig, mayor of nearby Bowmanstown.

It is against state policy to pave over a deer, said Walter Bortree, a Pennsylvania Department of Transportation engineer.
