Wyoming Bill Would Legalize Eating RoadkillBy Michael Frank on January 18th, 2013
A bill before the Wyoming legislature would allow people to take home roadkill and eat it. And, no, you’re not reading The Onion. House Bill 144 would allow people to take the food “if they’re going to eat it or process it,” said Representative Dan Zwonitzer. The bill would also allow the collection of carcasses for extracting an elk’s ivory teeth or an antelope hide. It likely would require anyone with a roadkill-eating permit to have committed to “putting road-killed wildlife carcasses to a beneficial use,” the bill states. Zwonitzer acknowledged that people may abuse the law and run down animals intentionally. “We have to think of all the angles and bad actors. People may not follow the law. But they’re also not following the law now.” Okay, then. Via Billings Gazette.
