Montana Moves to Legalize Eating Roadkill

It’s a delicacy in some parts of the country. Roadkill. We’ve all seen the little furry creatures along our roadways. It’s unfortunate, but technically, it’s population control. Now, the state of Montana, feel that it should be legal for you to hit something, and then take it home, cook it up and feed your family. According to ABC, Montana state Rep. Steve Lavin originally introduced the bill into Montana’s House to allow “game animals, fur-bearing animals, migratory game birds and upland game birds” who have been killed by a car to be harvested for food.

Here’s a few tips if you wanna grill up some roadkill. Should you decide that flattened possum is what’s for dinner, use a meat thermometer and make sure meat is 160 degrees Fahrenheit. When dressing the carcass, keep it away from other foods, scrub work surfaces with bleach afterward, and wash hands thoroughly – duh.

Oh and I can’t forget to mention, Montana is not the first state to pass this type of law. Colorado, Illinois and Indiana are among states that currently allow motorists the privilege of salvaging roadkill under certain circumstances.
