A Maggoty Rotting Clam Road

"It smelled like bodies decaying."

A property owner in Rhode Island, David Rose, used shells that still had meat left on them. Normally, oyster and clam shells are a sustainable landscaping alternative. Instead of dumping them, you can actually recycle the shells for construction or environmental projects.

It's possible Rose had good intentions, but didn't think about the consequences of raw meat in blazing temperatures.

"Some parts still has the meat, so now it's decaying. It's like bodies decaying. So, you've got about a million bodies decaying," said neighbor Sharon Moore.

"Everything is sort of taken over by this stench of decaying," Blair Moore added.

Local residents circulated a petition, and after two weeks, Rose was served a cease-and-desist letter by Rhode Island's DEM. He now has one week to remove the shells, which are infested with maggots.
