Legal to eat roadkill?

by Kody Mac

Have you ever fantasized about being a Beverly Hillbilly, dining on the finest of roadkill?

Probably not, but if you want to do just that, head to Montana.

A new law in effect as of Tuesday, October 1 now allows citizens to harvest deer, elk, and antelope for food.  Lawmakers reasoning? To help curb bobcats, mountain lions and bears from scouring roadways for roadkill.

Guess those in Montana will now have to watch for people instead...
