    in MO the county where my parents live has a roadkill list... if a deer is
    killed and the car owner makes the report they are offerred the oppertunity
    to take it to the processor, if they decline the county keeps a lits of
    people who may be interested... they start from the last reciepent and work
    down the list until someone wants it or the time frame ends. Lee

    Here is what I was able to gather from Googling around.



    Tennessee – gathering and consuming roadkill is legal

    Illinois – you can’t gather it from along the side of the road or the
    woods, but if someone kills it (either on purpose or by accident) they
    can keep it, or if they give it to you YOU can keep it. Either way,
    it has to be reported to the DNR.
    ( I guess the new law superceeds this one)

    Maine – if you hit it, you call the police and have them tag it.
    Then, you take it home and cook it.

    California – Nobody’s allowed to pick up roadkill, unless they have a
    scientific collecting permit and plan to study it. Nobody’s allowed
    to eat it.

    Minnesota – Pretty much the same as Illinois.

    Missouri – You have to obtain written permission to keep a road-killed
    deer to eat. I hope they are quick. That stuff doesn’t stay fresh
    forever.

    Texas – You’re not allowed to keep it. Drag it to the side of the
    road and leave it there. The TDT will take care of it.

    Washington State – Call Animal Services. Don’t eat it. If it’s on
    your property, bury it.

    Wisconsin – You can obtain a free permit to remove roadkill deer.
    There are also contractors who do so. I imagine, if you collect it,
    you can keep it. Any Wisconsinite want to verify?

    Wyoming – You have to get it tagged by a game warden, then you can
    keep it.





    Incidentally, in the UK, you can collect any dead “wild” animal you
    want to. If you find a dead animal that has been kept in captivity,
    you have to call up and get them registered as dead and cremated. So,
    no eating farm animals, pets, or circus animals. Darn! And that dead
    elephant looked SO tasty!

    You have to get a permit to pick up roadkill?! (Not that I'd eat roadkill,
    despite the notorious references to the southern U.S. made by some people.)
    I can just see the lines at the office now....

    Hey, the state hasta get its lucre, somehow. Nevermind some states
    have stopped picking up roadkill, letting it rot and putrify on the
    side of the road, as a way of reducing state employee costs. So, stop
    removing roadkill and charge those who do. Brilliant. Your govt in
    action.

    Apparently, someone here (CO) is getting them deer carcasses, cuz it's
    deer-splat city, this time of year, but I rarely see the carcass. I
    think if someone hits a deer they SHOULD be allowed to keep the meat.
    It's the least they should be compensated with, specially after
    sustaining thousands of dollars in damage to their vehicle.

    Mexican Eagles? I suppose you're referring to illegal aliens because I've
    never heard of a mexican eagle and I'm a bird watcher.

    Otherwise known as the Crested Cara Cara.
    <http://www.greglasley.net/caracara.html>

    They are known by both names around here. Beautiful creatures. Always a
    pleasure to run across one feasting on a deer or Armadillo carcass.

    Here is another link that actually uses the name "Mexican Eagle":

    I have yet to be lucky enough to have the camera ready when I run across
    them. They seem to be around here more in the fall.

    No dear. You might try googling first before making presumptions. ;-)
    I'm a serious raptor fan so am fairly familiar with our local birds.
    They are both scavangers and predators:
