Bon appétit

This is certainly the oddest story I've seen all week:

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.

Dead skunk in the middle of the road, stinkin' to high heaven. Yum!

Oh, and the story also notes which states already have such a law, and Indiana is one of them. If you went out and deliberately tried to run down a tasty critter, would that be your takeout menu?
