|Subject: Bill that Artimus should get passed in TN||Date: 2/21/2013 8:03 PM|

By passing a bill last week that allows motorists to eat their roadkill, the Montana House of Representatives may be on their way to legalizing the ultimate drive-through experience.
State Rep. Steve Lavin originally introduced the bill into Montana's House to allow "game animals, fur-bearing animals, migratory game birds and upland game birds" who have been killed by a car to be harvested for food.
"This includes deer, elk, moose and antelope, the animals with the most meat," said Lavin.
Lavin said that in his "day job" as a state trooper he sees a ton of animals hit on Montana's roadways that could potentially be repurposed to provide meat for people in need. State troopers already alert food banks to viable bumper banquets. This bill would simply make the practice legal.
He added that it certainly wouldn't apply to situations like "finding a dead squirrel in the middle of the road" either.
Art could be dining in high style....
