mad I live in central Minnesota and my land borders a beautiful state forest. Lately a lot of trash has been dumped in the forest. I found this on my way through the forest today.

does it still have a VIN number ?

I think I would call the warden on that.

It's happening all over the place. I can't figure out what is going on.

I would be looking for a VIN number too. Shame that is there , whoever left it there could have just as easy taken it to the scrapyard for a couple bucks.

I was hiking here a couple months back in a state forest with a friend. Found the remains of an old truck a couple of miles in on a trail. Been there a while , now inaccessible due to the trees growing in over the years and unable to remove it. Rusted beyond recognition but it had the old school 'lever shocks'

Now just a relic until it rusts away completely.

Lot of that out here too. Several stolen cars a year get dumped, even pushed into a local fishable pond. Thankfully most of us out here care and a guy with a cat winched them out. Just two weeks ago dot towed away a mercedes that had been dumped down the road from my driveway.
Donít even get me started on all the trash that gets dumped, worst part is thereís a transfer site not 5 miles down the highway!
My pos neighbor shares a mailbox post with me and Iím guessing dumps his ashtray when he checks his mail?? Iíve been thinking of sweeping them up and depositing them postage paid in his box. I know the mailman personally and he doesnít smoke.
People can be pathetic and disgusting. I donít understand how people get the idea they can poop wherever they please..

I concur, but here's my theory: high unemployment, due to the covid scam as we know. When people are unemployed many of them turn into lazy slobs. Easier to dump trash in the woods than haul it or pay for disposal. Property & petty crime goes up, resulting in more hot vehicles and personal goods getting dumped when thieves get cold feet. Substance abuse increases, so you'll find more beer cans and drug paraphernalia. Plus unemployed people care less about DUI.

Unfortunately many people lack the discipline or maturity to remain functional without employment, and when widespread disfunction increases we see the effects in many ways.

Had a field check and a visit with a local CO while nuisance beaver trapping roadside recently. Said it's been the busiest summer of his career. Bush full of weekend warriors, trash, tree cutting, noise complaints, just no experience or knowledge about responsible resource use or conservation.

I pick up trash every stinking day in the city park. It is pathetic that people don't appreciate what we have. Just plain pigs.
We used to have a community cleanup one day a year where people could get rid of their junk for free, yet the sh*tholes never got cleaned up. Still too much work for the lazy.
As far as the beer cans, with the open-container law as it is, people will throw out empties to avoid getting caught.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

Seeing it here too. Lack of people being out and about, so less eyes to keep folks in check. Empty malls and strip stores ,parking lot full of burnout and donut tire marks. Never had that here. News keeps screaming that the cops are told to stand down, the a$$ hats were listening.....

I collect the beer cans out of the ditches when I'm beaver trapping, and I don't do it for the 10 cents. When I was checked by the CO couple weeks ago as he was looking in my truck and gathering my documents it occurred to me that the last can I threw in landed on top of one of the beavers which would have suggested that I would have drank the beer since I caught it. He chuckled and said, "I'm not judging" when I explained it wasn't mine. grin

Getting rid of trash Is very expensive. But dumping It on public ground Is unacceptable.
