Would You Like Some Road Kill for Lunch?

Would you eat road kill? Lots of people will, and now lawmakers in Montana are considering a bill to let residents salvage road kill for meat.

The measure does require you to get a permit from your police department. Once you have that in hand, you can scoop up animal carcasses from the road. Now there are some limits. You can only pick up elk, deer, antelope or moose. One measure also listed fur-bearing animals and some birds but that has been changed. The state Fish, Wildlife and Parks department would have to regulate how the carcasses are gathered. Montana State Senator Larry Jent says: “It really is a sin to waste a good meat.”  But opponents question whether or not this is safe. Senator Kendall Van Dyk says police officers are not qualified to decide whether roadkill is safe to eat. “Despite it’s good intention, it doesn’t pass the smell test for me.”
