Wis. Vets Graveyard Hid Dog, Bones, Poles

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Excavators at a southern Wisconsin veterans cemetery have discovered a dead dog, a bag of deer bones and telephone poles.

The state Department of Natural Resources learned last year the grounds supervisor at the Southern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery had been burying all manner of trash on the graveyard’s grounds. The supervisor resigned in November after an investigation began.

The state contracted with Veolia Environmental Solutions to clean up the garbage. The work took place last month.

According to documents The Associated Press obtained through an open records request, the trash included a dead dog, a bag of deer bones, telephone poles, a washing machine, shingles, mattresses, steel fencing, rebar, aerosol cans, bags of personal garbage with the former grounds supervisor’s address, a boat bumper and a child’s bicycle helmet.

    Hey idiot, next time you want to dump trash, dont leave your personal information.

    I hope he rots like garbage.

    How sad. Bet he didn’t want to pay taxes for trash pick up when there was a perfectly good spot where he worked. Even supplied with a back hoe. Should make him dig it all up with a spoon.

      He didn’t want to pay taxes for trash pickup? Huh? What does that even mean?
