Bill Could Make It Easier To Take home Road kill

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Legislation could make it easier for drivers to take home roadkill in Michigan.

The Detroit Free Press reports the proposal would simplify the process for taking an animal killed by a vehicle. It's currently allowed by the state after getting a free salvage tag from the state Department of Natural Resources or local police.

The bill was introduced by Republican state Sens. Darwin Booher of Evart and John Pappageorge of Troy. Booher says it would allow a motorist to take the animal for eating and other uses, such as baiting or composting. People could keep a written record about the animal and get a tag later.

DNR spokesman Ed Golder says the department doesn't have a formal position on the roadkill bill.
