Ever Wanted To Take Road Kill Home?

LANSING, Mich. (WWJ) – Have you ever wanted to take road kill home? If that’s what you’re hoping to do, it may soon become easier in Michigan.

Republican State Senator John Pappageorge of Troy is one of two lawmakers that have introduced a bill that would simplify the process of taking road kill home. Right now you can, but you have to obtain a special salvage tag from the DNR or local police first.

If the change is approved, all you would have to do is keep a written record of what, and where, you struck the animal with your vehicle, and get a tag later. Right the bill is before committee and no hearings have been scheduled.

Several states already have loosened laws pertaining to road kill for the dinner table.
