Just pick up the damned deer

Media in trouble over at Blue Jersey has a follow-up on the great NJ deer carcass controversy. It seems the Hunterdon County Board of Freeholders is so incensed that the state is asking them to clean up after the drivers on their roads that they are going to court.
The decision to impose the cost of clean-up on local governing bodies so incensed the Hunterdon County Board of Freeholders that they filed suit against the DOT last week, arguing that deer are, by tradition, the state’s responsibility
I love the argument that the deer are the "state's responsibility." It's not the deer that are at fault here. They are just going about their normal lives. And wham! Some soccer mom smashes into them. Obviously the person hitting the deer should be responsible for cleaning up the mess.
