In first week, Montana issues 45 roadkill salvage permits

Nearly two-thirds of the 45 roadkill salvage tags issued by Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks in the first week of the new permits were for whitetail deer, with three issued for elk and 13 for mule deer. “To me it’s a surprise,” Ron Aasheim, longtime MFWP spokesman, said of the high volume of permit requests, adding the obvious: “People need to be aware that if (the road kill has) been there awhile you may not want to eat it.” Flathead Beacon.
