Lisa Negawo was on her way to work yesterday afternoon when she encountered a gruesome scene outside the Von Hanson's Meats store in Blaine.

Strewn outside a back entrance to the business were a number of dead, gutted, well-past-rigor-mortis deer. Below the jump is a photo she took (WARNING -- it's graphic):

Reached for comment by City Pages, Negawo, an employee at a bar near Von Hanson's, said coworkers told her the deer had been outside the meat shop all day yesterday.

"It's a meat place, so I guess I can see why it's legit they're there," Negawo said in reference to the deer corpses. "But it shouldn't be outside. Nobody wants to see that."

Negawo said she went into Von Hanson's to ask them what was up with the deer and was told, "Welcome to hunting season in Blaine."

"Is that normal?" Negawo, who recently moved to Minnesota from Kansas City, asked. "Because it shouldn't be."

A message left at Von Hanson's office wasn't immediately returned.
