Road Kill Anyone?
Motorists who hit deer in the future might be able to grab the carcass and run. a proposal under consideration by the Senate would end the permit requirement to take the animal after a car-deer accident. One would still be required for hunting. Senator Darwin Booher says he's hit a number of deer in the past decade but had to leave them by the side of the road because he didn't have the required paperwork. Some claim the animal is more of a safety issue being left by the roadway than if the motorist involved in the crash simply hauled it away. Others are concerned that the practice could lead to a loss of revenue for the state.
