Roadkill permits? There will be an app for that
LEWIS AND CLARK COUNTY
Montana officials want to make salvaging road kill for the dinner table as easy as a click of your mouse.
State lawmakers earlier this year passed the bill allowing motorists to salvage the carcasses of deer, elk, moose and antelope struck by vehicles. They left it to the state Fish, Wildlife and Parks agency to sort out how to issue roadkill permits.
State officials plan to let drivers who accidentally kill big game, to print out permits at home that allow them to harvest the meat for food.
Later on, they'll make an app for that too.
Wildlife commissioners are expected to approve regulations today that allow people to go online for the permits.
