Road Kill - the healthy alternative

  The news from Montana that makes it into the NY Times frequently generates a mild rant on my part about how the eastern news behemoth likes to write with tongue in cheek about the Treasure State. Roadkill as a menu item is the latest example.

The Montana Legislature did indeed pass a law this last session that makes it legal for someone to harvest antelope, deer, elk or moose that have been hit by a vehicle. Since about 7,000 animals end up this way, the menu expansion has merit. Even PETA agrees: "If people must eat animal carcasses, roadkill is a superior option to the neatly shrink-wrapped plastic packages of meat in the supermarket."


PETA finding common ground with the Montana Legislature, now THAT' S worth writing about!
