Eating roadkill legalized in Montana

BOZEMAN, Mont., Oct. 1 (UPI) -- A new law taking effect Tuesday in Montana makes it legal for residents to take roadkill meat home for food.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported the law was passed after Montana residents successfully argued that useful meat should not be wasted, even if the animal met an accidental end on the road.

"Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to be out there driving around looking for a deer to hit," said hunter Alex Rich of Bozeman. "But I don't think there's anything ethically wrong with picking up an animal that's been struck by a vehicle."
