Since when was it illegal to harvest roadkill?

It’s not as rare as you might think.
About 20 other states also let people take meat from animals killed by vehicles. And advocates say roadkill can be high-quality, grass-fed grub.
Washington state began allowing the salvaging of deer and elk carcasses a year ago.
In Pennsylvania, people can take deer or turkeys that are killed on the road if they report the incidents to the state Game Commission within 24 hours.
In Oregon, Gov. Kate Brown signed the roadkill measure with little fanfare last week after lawmakers passed it without a single “nay” vote.

  1. I think the problem was over-zealous wildlife officers ticket people for having game meat out of season or without a hunting license.
