From remarks in the Montana State Legislature concerning a bill allowing drivers to salvage the carcasses of antelope, deer, elk, and moose killed in automobile accidents. In 2011, there were more than 1,900 collisions between vehicles and wild animals in the state. The bill was signed into law in April.

This is a bill that allows a law-enforcement officer to issue a permit to possess a roadkill animal if the motorist is the person whose vehicle smote that particular creature to death or if the animal needed a little help from the law-enforcement officer. It really is a sin to waste that good meat when it could be salvaged, when somebody could use it.
