Efforts to Change Michigan Roadkill Laws

Legislation is through the Michigan Senate that would allow those who hit certain animals to be able to load them in their vehicles right away after calling it in. State law says now before being able to do that you’d need a salvage tag first. Critics say because of the time it takes most people don’t bother.

The bill’s sponsor is State Senator Darwin Booher. He says as it is now all too often what motorists hit will end up decomposing along a street or highway.

Critics worry though some may abuse the law and use their vehicles to run these animals over on purpose with the intent of cooking them and eating them later. While the legislation would make that illegal they say it would be tough to enforce.

The State House takes it up next.
