Decent burial given bird


Dispatch advised officers that a man was seen burying an unknown object at the overlook area just above Grand Coulee Dam.

Officers arrived and learned that a Georgia driver and two friends had hit a bird with their vehicle and buried the bird and placed a rock on top of the little grave.

The men, Dion Schmidt, 20, Isaiah Broomfield, 24, and Bernardo Stapleton, 21, reported to police that they buried the bird, then had a short ceremony for it, took a picture and started walking towards the dam.

The person who reported the incident said that the men had something in their hands and were carrying it cautiously, dug a hole, put the object in the hole and then covered it up.

Schmidt told police that when he stopped the vehicle the bird was still on the bumper so they decided to bury it.
