MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) - The Isabella Road Commission is preparing for the annual dead deer pickup program in the central Michigan county.

Employees dug a hole Monday that will serve as a mass grave for the deer carcasses found along roadways as the snow continues to melt.

The Morning Sun of Mount Pleasant (https://bit.ly/1BpVcTK ) reports the program relies on people who call the sheriff’s department to report locations of dead deer within Isabella County. The carcasses are collected by volunteer Isabella County Jail trusties under the supervision of corrections officers.

The program was launched by former sheriff Barry DeLau during his five terms in office. Although he retired in 2004, current Sheriff Leo Mioduszewski has continued the program.

Mioduszewski says he hopes to complete the pickup within a month.
