    On the MN prairie.
    If it's warm enough to dig a hole where you live, I'd just go ahead and bury her.

    Bummer, sorry for your loss.
    Bury her deep, 1-2 feet or more. or something may dig her back up.
    I have a large rural property and just toss the carcass out in the woods, something will eat it.

    We do the same. We need to make sure it's somewhere the dog won't find it, though, or he'll drag it around until it's good and ripe, then roll in it. :sick
