Nov 2nd, 2018 : Yum, Roadkill

People across the country salvage and eat roadkill, it’s only illegal in CA and TX.
33 states have a system for recycling roadkill into charities and food banks.
But Alaska has a bigger problem, higher speeds from a sparse population, and hefty moose.
Roadkill is legally state property and technically drivers seeing unattended roadkill are required to report it.

Sorry Mom, your calf is kaput.



Quote:
Even as Alaska works to improve road lighting, clear encroaching brush for visibility, and install one-way gates that funnel moose off the roads, wildlife experts estimate that 800 to 1,000 moose die in “vehicular interactions” every year. Moose strikes are so common in some areas that Del Frate has heard of locals devising bumper guard systems that allow them to smash into a beast and drive away with minimal damage to their vehicles. Then you’ve got a lesser number of deer strikes in the southeast, says Tony Kavalok, a Division of Wildlife Conservation worker since 2002. And the occasional bear, mountain goat, or caribou strike in other climes. That’s, conservatively, over a million pounds of rotting animal scattered across the state, blocking roadways and attracting scavengers.
Eating Road Salt



Quote:
But in the ‘70s, Alaska developed a clever system to turn this burden into a boon: The state created a roadkill salvage program. In this system, the state contacts citizens and charities every time a trooper finds or is alerted to a big animal dead on the road. Soon thereafter, these groups and individuals swoop in, spirit the corpses away, and turn them into hundreds of thousands of pounds of edible meat every year. In theory, this lean red flesh is as versatile as beef, but it’s typically hacked into stew chuck or ground down for use in burgers and sausages. Game meats, which are wiry to start with and ever tougher with age, benefit from being broken up and mixed with their own fat.

The law is that way in Texas because it is a hunting law. You can't hunt from the road, and if they didn't have the law that way, hayseeds with giant pickups would "accidentally" hit the deer, and then harvest it without a tag (and often not even in season.)

Texas also has the same program for deer -- if you hit a deer, you can contact the game wardens, and they will come harvest the roadkill and give the venison to charity.

Hitting a deer is common in PA, over 100,000 a year, usually when you're on your way to somewhere important.
However it's really hard to do it intentionally, as in go out and hunt dear with your bumper.

Bullshit. If I hit a deer, and ruin my car, if anybody eats that sumbitch it's gonna be me.

That would be stupid in the extreme. For starters, it's gonna get damn expensive hitting animals with your car.

"Dayum!! Dat chick got ass for days!!"

"Word."

Translation:

"My. What an attractive young lady."

"F'shizzle."








I've been using 'werd' ever since I learned that America's first African-American-owned-radio-station's call letters were WERD.
