Default From road kill to the dinner table

HELENA, Mont. - Salvaging roadkill for the dinner table is not only legal starting this month in Montana, but state officials plan to let drivers who accidentally kill big game to simply print out permits at home that allow them to harvest the meat.

Later on, there will be an app for that.

The Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission is expected to approve regulations Thursday that allow people to go online for permits to salvage for food the animals they hit and kill within 24 hours of the fender-bender.

No need to present the carcass to a law-enforcement official in person within a day of a crash, as was originally planned. Now drivers will be able to apply at a website and print out permits from their own computers.

And a request for bids is being issued to develop a smartphone application for roadkill permits, said Ron Aasheim, spokesman for the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks agency.

"With all the advances in technology, why not allow people to do that," he said.

Montana lawmakers earlier this year passed the bill allowing motorists to salvage deer, elk, moose and antelope struck by vehicles. Supporters who didn't want to see the meat go to waste won out over skeptics who wondered whether the meat would be safe for human consumption.

Other doubters stewed over whether drivers would intentionally gun their engines whenever they spotted an animal in the road.

The only question I have is why we have to notify the state that we're eating eat a dead animal at all.

Not anymore than usual. Some meat can be salvaged if it is not a high speed wreck.

Good for the state, in Alaska in you kill and don't harvest its a crime, that's why I don't hunt, I see no point in killing an animal just for the thrill, I would harvest the meat and put in large freezer for when it gets tight... some months I dont have enough food and i don't live in the country so i go to food pantry and they are very kind in helping me make it. Being a diabetic I have to eat at least 3 times a day and I just can't afford to do it sometimes so I appreciate the goodness of others to put a meal on my plate so i would eat a roadkill moose without thinking twice about it.....
