Possible Answers:

  1. Composting
  2. Fermenting
  3. Rendering
  4. Burial

The Correct Answer:

D. Burial is a method of carcass disposal that involves mixing 1 part carcass to 2 parts litter and 1 part straw in alternate layers in a boxed, enclosed area.

Explanation:

The animal carcass is critical for any health hazard to humans or animals.  It is a major problem in the cities because of the shortage of land. In the case of a pet owner, it will not create an issue because generally, people own only one to two pets in their home, but if someone owns an animal industry, then it would be a significant issue. Advanced planning is required to dispose of many animals, which is why certain government Agencies come into action.

The permit of local audiences and terrain generally requires burial. The government agency is responsible for approving the location for the Burial; if done without a permit or license, it can result in criminal cases.

Furthermore, the proper arrangements must be made to move the animals and their graves using heavy equipment. The state and tribal transportation departments can help pet owners and animal industries do so.

According to the American department of Agricultural animal and plant health inspection service,  proper procedures must be followed during this process because it has a very high chance of resulting in certain diseases.  That is why the “Hog Cholera emergency disease guidelines” and “foot and mouth disease emergency disease guidelines” are followed during the burial process.
