  1. Oh, hell, no. Farmers have been doing that for as long as there have been farms. Just be glad it wasn’t pig shit. Oooo weee, that stuff STINKS!

  2. My father once (and only once) spread fish whatever on our lawn. It reeked every time it rained that summer (Michigan – rains a lot). My mom threatened bodily harm if he ever did it again.

    I think a fairer punishment would be for the &100,000 to be distributed to the neighbors. Of course, then the “pollution police” wouldn’t get their tribute.

  3. The pasture across the road from me is owned by a big cattle rancher who also owns a bunch of chicken houses and a trucking company. He hauls in chicken litter with a fleet of fertilizer trucks a couple of times a year. It doesn’t smell as bad as a chicken house, but (and I say this from experience) you always want to keep the dogs inside for a few days so they don’t slip under the fence to roll in it.

    It is the shit they clean out of chicken houses, has feathers in it too.
