Bridgewater, SD, put up with a big stink recently when 44 tons of bison meat left in a closed processing plant began to rot. The meat was left in freezers when the company, Bridgewater Quality Meats, moved operations to another town. It was supposed to be picked up by a pet food company but the transfer never took place.
Then, when the power company shut off the juice and spring came, nature took its course. Soon, the smell pervaded the town, forcing Bridgewater to expend over $10,000
