Eating roadkill legalized in Montana
Potentially good meal shouldn't go to waste, say advocates
There's something new on the menu in Montana and it comes fresh from the local Interstate. Eating roadkill is now legal in the U.S. state, under a new law that takes effect Tuesday.
Some residents there said the potentially good meal should not go to waste, even if the animal came to what some would consider an unseemly end.
As It Happens host Carol Off spoke to Alex Rich, an avid hunter from Bozeman, Mont.
"Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to be out there driving around looking for a deer to hit," said Rich. "But I don't think there's anything ethically wrong with picking up an animal that's been struck by a vehicle."
