Doug Robinson: Want a tasty treat? Try a roadkill recipe

Published: Monday, March 4 2013 10:53 p.m. MST

Let's put it this way: Douglass says roadkill is often offered to wildlife rehabilitators whose job is to nurse wildlife back to health after an injury. "Sometimes even they won't take it," he says. "They're worried about giving it to birds of prey. That's an indicator of what we're talking about."

By the way, it's illegal to intentionally hit an animal; accidental collisions between man and beast are frequent and hazardous enough for drivers and animals. Douglass knows of some people who avoid certain roads at times during the year simply to prevent hitting a deer.

The best way to avoid the roadkill dilemma is simple: Avoid hitting the animal. On the other hand, maybe you'll want to take a fork on the road just in case.
