Proposed Road Kill Legislation Has its Critics

A proposal being discussed by state lawmakers that would make it easier to take home animals killed after being hit by a vehicle is being questioned by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.  Those who support it say requiring a permit first takes too much time. The say that often results in animals being left along the side of the road to rot.

However the D.N.R. contends if the regulations were changed some may try to run over animals on purpose. Of special concern are wild turkeys. They are very slow moving and some argue they would make for easy targets.
