Illinois roadkill bill has legs
Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn is expected to sign a measure reversing the prohibition of roadkill pickup and use in the Land of Lincoln. Residents with a furbearers license may use fur-bearing mammals and deer may be claimed by residents not delinquent in child support payments. An article in Northwestern’s J-school publication, MedIll notes that “Roadkill takers should check the animal for visible signs of bacteria and bugs.” Good advice.
