So I CAN'T skin and eat roadkill? Dammit submitter, way to get my hopes up just so you can yank the rug out from under me.

All the vitamins are in the skin. Leave it to Yankies to throw away the best part.

I didn't know it was illegal to use road kill.

/My bad.
 
2012-01-08 11:10:54 AM
we already have those laws, thanks though.

Welcome to the 1930's, where people club squirrels to death with shovels in order to claim them as supper.

Don't worry subby, once you get south of I-74 in Illinois it might as well be Kentucky or Missouri, so you're not too off-base.

Does this include hit and run victims in Chicago?

Good lord, what is with the states run by progressives. I bet they even have laws governing how you can hold your dick while you're peeing.

If you shake it more than 3 times then you are playing with it.

Downstate Illinois is pretty much the south, and would be if the locals had their way.

Just don't touch their beloved white squirrels (new window), that's grounds for a hangin'!

It depends on what part of the state you're in and if you have your dick-shaking permit paid for and on you.

Peorian here. The border is a little bit to the southeast, in Creve Coeur.

Joking aside, at least 14 states have laws related to roadkill, including those that let motorists' keep animals they hit, though some pertain only to deer or bears, according to an informal survey for The Associated Press by the National Conference of State Legislatures.

I am not sure what will be left of your car after you run it into a bear.
 
2012-01-08 12:12:11 PM
I don't have a knee-jerk reaction to this particular law, but Illinois really should be put on a long law-making hiatus.

Yeah, you're gonna be worse off than the bear.

Anywho, in Wisconsin if you hit a deer and kill it, you can call the DNR out. They dress it and give you the meat right there on the road, so this law doesn't seem that messed up to me. To each his own, I guess.

I'm from Alabama, lived there for twenty-four years. Then I moved to Chicago, lived in the South Loop for two and now in the burbs for almost four. Whenever anyone I meet here makes a crack about Alabama and racism, I just remind them that Chicago is segregated.

Northern culture has white flight and ghettos.

Southern culture has the battle flag of a racist failed country and segregated proms, as well as a huge percentage of the population being opposed to interracial marriage, as well as countless other acts and attitudes of outright, blatant racism.

That tree trunk in your eye hurt much?

Most of your big cities are. Dallas has Oak Cliff, which is mostly ghetto, and then you have North Dallas, which is more hip and preppy.

Why would it be illegal?

I could see banning people from intentionally hitting animals as a way to get around hunting permits, but if the deed is done what's wrong with eating it? You can't sue the state if you give yourself food poisoning because you didn't know what you were doing.

And for any dedicated greens out there this would be an available animal protein source that doesn't rely on intensive industrialized animal production techniques.

The government really shouldn't be in the business of telling people not to do stuff like this.

Right .

The north is known for it's overflowing population of rednecks and it's a mistake to think that the south is a stronghold of them.

Got any more ass talk you'd like to get off your chest ass ?
