Montana legalized harvesting roadkill. Would you dig in?
Under the bill, which passed the House in February, large animals like elk, deer, moose and antelope can be collected for food. Law enforcement officers would issue permits to allow harvesting under the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks. Lavin likens the process to that of hunting . A previous version of the bill allowed for harvesting animals like bears and bobcats, but the decision was made to cut those animals for fear that some motorists would intentionally try to hit them for their valuable pelts.
