Roadkill For Dinner? Montana Wants To Make It Legal Read mo

Postby Virgo » Wed Apr 10, 2013 3:05 pm



Personally, I support it. I live in New York State where people routinely hit deer and other animals. The law is that if you hit a deer and it dies or you suspect it will, you must to call the police. The police come, and anyone who wants to may take the animal. People do this all the time. A 180 pound buck usually yields about 72 pounds of meat. That is a lot of meat that can feed people without anyone having to intentionally hunt or kill an animal.

Montana also has large elk and moose populations. So each one hit currently is hundreds of pounds of meat that could feed people just wasted. What a shame.

Round here some people eat pheasant when it is accidentally killed. Sounds like a good idea imo.

I am a vegetarian, but I find this to be a good idea. There is definitely no intention of killing (as long it wasn't hit on-purpose), no factory farming, none of the breeding or anti-biotic fed animal issues; basically an 'organic' meat. I think it is a good idea, for those who like the taste of meat.

No point in letting the poor animal's body go to waste.

A good idea, BUT I do wish that more effort was put in to safe places where wildlife can cross over roads, more warning signs for motorists, and such things, so that less wildlife gets hit and killed in the first place. We are the ones who came and built asphalt roads in their backyards, and who send tonnes of metal whizzing down them at speed, so we are the ones who ought to make those roads safer, for the wildlife as well as the humans.

I've eaten plenty of roadkill.
In the 3 or 4 years I lived at a sort-of commune we ate a lot of roadkill possum, rabbit, and even once a cat. And before the animal-lovers get all shocked about eating someone's pet cat, NO, it was not a pet. It was a wild cat which lived on the farm.
The skins of the animals were cured and used to make an enormous fur bedspread.

Possum. Cute AND delicious.

Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.
