This undated photo provided by the Summit County Solid Waste Collection Office on Friday, May 24, 2019, shows deer near a landfill at the Three Mile Canyon Landfill in Coalville, Utah.

The Division of Wildlife Resources said Friday said officials found plastic bags and latex gloves in some of the deers’ remains but say the main culprit for their deaths was a harsh winter.

Officials learned of the dead deer after hikers shared photos of them strewn across a road near the landfill in the small city of Coalville.

Summit County Solid Waste Division superintendent Tim Loveday said deer come to the area seeking food but become sick after eating trash blowing from the landfill.

Hadley said officials are working to craft a plan to help prevent deer from getting into the landfill.
