Wyoming Bill Would Legalize Eating Roadkill


Vehicle hunting could soon become a reality in Wyoming.

Currently, there is a bill before the Wyoming Legislature that would allow you to take home any roadkill you find on the side of the road. Rep. Dan Zwonitzer, R-Cheyenne, also states that the bill would also allow people to collect roadkill if they’re going to use the carcass for scientific purposes. (Not really sure what that means?)

The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission would decide how to permit the process. One possibility in the bill would be for people to carry an authorizing letter from Game and Fish to collect roadkill. To receive a letter, people would commit to “putting road-killed wildlife carcasses to a beneficial use,” the bill states.

The proposed bill prohibits people from taking home bighorn sheep, birds under the Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act and federal threatened or endangered species that people are prohibited from possessing.
