PIERRE, S.D. — The South Dakota Transportation Department reports that any hay remaining in highway ditches is considered illegal.

The agency says anyone who wants to claim ownership of illegal bales must get a permit from the Transportation Department. Those permits are issued on a first-come, first-served basis and allow people to take ownership of any illegal hay bales.

Permits are available at Transportation Department offices in Aberdeen, Belle Fourche, Custer, Huron, Mitchell, Mobridge, Pierre, Rapid City, Sioux Falls, Watertown, Winner and Yankton.

The department will remove or authorize the removal of any hay bales remaining in highway ditches after Oct. 31.
