Roadkill, it's what's for dinner

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Roadkill for dinner at home is gaining traction out West.

Earlier this year, a new law allowed residents in Montana to legally take home big game, accidentally killed on the road. Since then, a New York Times article says the meat is on the menu more and more often.

According to The Times, more than a dozen states have similar laws, including Tennessee.

Shelby County Agricenter International President John Charles Wilson discusses road kill with FOX13 News anchor Mearl Purvis.

Before you plan your next dinner, few things you should know: not all game is fair game; there are dangers of eating big game from the highway; and you are encouraged to call 1-800-372-3928 to let Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency know.
