    This candidate wants you to be able to eat roadkill (if you want to)


    ...The Dallas Observer believes that he’s currently the only candidate who is campaigning on this issue and notes that currently picking up roadkill is illegal, noting, “this is because of health-and-safety concerns (hard to know what vile pathogens might be swarming over any given carcass), partly it's to discourage people from using their cars as hunting weapons.” They also noted that other states like Illinois and Montana have started to let people grab roadkill.

    It is legal in WV to take home a road killed animal. We have so many deer in this state that they just passed a law years ago letting you take it home. I ran over a whitetail one night, and the woman with me complained about me not stopping to pick it up.

    My concern is restaurants finding a cheap source of meat!
