- Some deer hit by cars stay along the road longer than people would like.
That's happening as the state adjusts to a new carcass pickup system.
A provision in the state budget transferred responsibility for picking up dead deer from the Department of Natural Resources to the Department of Transportation.
The change took effect in September.
A transportation department spokeswoman says people contracted to remove the dead deer are supposed to do the job within two business days of a report.
She says the system is working.
Some officials said they weren't informed of the switch of responsibility for carcass removal from the DNR to the DOT.
