Dead animals kosher?

I see from a recent ‘Notice to Occupants’ from the Municipality of Pontiac that dead animals aren’t accepted in regular garbage pick-up. This makes sense as dead animals can bring about disease and illness.

I see from a recent ‘Notice to Occupants’ from the Municipality of Pontiac that dead animals aren’t accepted in regular garbage pick-up. This makes sense as dead animals can bring about disease and illness.
Unfortunately, this notice isn’t consistent.
Last year, around this time, when my wife and I were walking along Chemin
de la Rivière toward Chemin des Pères-Dominicains, there were several carcasses of large animals (bears?) in the ditch, close to a stream that runs toward the river. The stench was unbearable and vultures were very protective of their feast. Bits of fur and entrails strewn over the road didn’t make for a pleasant walk. Thinking this could be a public health hazard, I naively tried to report it, only to get bounced from one level of authority to another.  After four or five attempts to get the right department, I gave up.
I see this year that the carcasses, stench and vultures are back. Clearly, someone is purposely dumping dead animals there or there’s something in that location killing them.
So, to get this straight: a dead squirrel in the garbage is "non-compliant", but large animal carcasses dumped next to a stream running along a Route Verte tourist attraction is acceptable?
