As 2013 comes to an end many of us are in a rush to wrap up our ‘to do’ list for the year.
One item you may have not had the time to get to is obliterating those unwanted animal carcasses with explosives. Luckily, the government has some recommendations.
Published in January of 1995, “Obliterating Animal Carcasses With Explosives” still remains an essential document on the proper “how to” for the obliteration of large carcasses.
Some important selections from the guide include:
“It is important to consider location, time of year, and size of the carcass when selecting the quantity and type of explosive to accomplish the obliteration task.”
“Place 1 pound (1.36 kilograms) of explosives under the carcass in four locations. The carcass then can be rolled onto the explosives if necessary.”
“Horseshoes should be removed to minimize dangerous flying debris.”
Hopefully, you will find the link to this guide useful. But remember, it is important to “Consult a qualified blaster when explosives are to be used.”
Be safe, this year and into the next.
