This undated photo provided by the Summit County Solid Waste Collection Office on Friday, May 24, 2019, shows deer near a landfill at the Three Mile Canyon Landfill in Coalville, Utah. The Division of Wildlife Resources says they are investigating the cause of death for more than 30 deer near the landfill in northeast Utah. Summit County Solid Waste Division superintendent Tim Loveday says deer come to the landfill seeking food but perish after eating trash blowing from the landfill. He says the recent spike in the state's deer population and the brutal winter Utah recently experienced has meant more deer are dying of starvation and cold. Summit County plans to add a litter fence and cover the landfill from wildlife. (Summit County Solid Waste Collection Office via AP)
