Wyoming Will Soon Have an App for Roadkill
Recently Wyoming passed a law making it legal to scrape roadkill and take it home for consumption. I'm sure it was happening anyway.
So that should be it, right? Just tell everyone that it's not legal and we're all good. -- RIGHT?
This is the government we are talking about. It's never that simple.
The state of Wyoming has just opened a public comment period asking for your input on "the rules" regarding roadkill. Also, they need your help developing a roadkill app.
Apparently, should you find some delicious-looking critter squished on the highway, you'll be able to use an app to take a picture of it and sent it to the state. They will let you know by looking at the photo if it is safe for consumption or not.
If you've never gotten involved in a public comment period before you'll want to get in on this one. I mean, come on, this has fun written all over it.
The public comment period is open until September 24. Comments can be submitted online or mailed in. Use this link if you are commenting online. There will also be a public meeting held on August 26 at 6 p.m. at the Casper Game and Fish Office. I might just attend that meeting for the laughs. After the comment period is closed, written comments will be presented to the Game and Fish Commission for approval at their November meeting in Riverton.
I'm not someone who would ever consume roadkill. But I'll download that app just so I can say I have a Wyoming roadkill app on my phone.
I'm sure you'll enjoy the Road Kill Café song I've left for you, below.
