New Wyoming law allows drivers to take home roadkill, prepare it for dinner

If you hit it, you can eat it.

A new Wyoming law allows drivers to take home wildlife that was accidentally killed by a car, and prepare it for dinner.

Salvaging roadkill had been illegal in the state for generations before Monday’s bill singing. Now, Wyoming joins 30 other states where drivers can cook a carcass, including New York and New Jersey, according to Wide Open Eats.

Some 3,000 instances of roadkill are reported a year in The Cowboy State, and tons of pounds of fresh, lean and edible meat went to waste, officials said.
