(USA Today)   Southern rednecks rejoice as new law allows them to skin and eat roadkill. Wait... the law is from Illinois? Whoops, sorry about the stereotyping there, Jethro   (usatoday.com) divider line 21

Teen Wolf Blitzer: It always amuses me when people think rednecks are only from the south.


Also This.

When you encounter rednecks in Minnesota, Wisconsin/UP, and frickin' Canada, you understand its not a geography thing....

Bit'O'Gristle: I live in central Illinois, and I've hit one deer,and one pheasant, both bounced off my windshield, and were not run over by my wheels. (therefore not squished) They were very very tasty.

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.



Call me silly, but I think white flight, ghettos, and DWB stops out in the 'burbs "outright, blatant racism" as well. While the South has no shortage of bigots, neither does the North: take a trip to the Milwaukee 'burbs and tell us all about their enlightened attitudes towards race.

Heh this is pretty funny. Not that they are passing a law to make it legal but that it was ever illegal. I have had roadkill deer a few times. Cleanest kill I have ever seen was roadkill. Deer slipped on the ice just as a plow truck came by and smacked it in the head. Called dnr and got over 100 pounds of venison and two pretty cool antlers. Also here if the dnr gets a Call and its fresh, and no one claims i the meat goes to the soup kitchen for the homeless. One of my friends in high school hit a bobcat, called dnr for the pelt, they came out and skinned it for him. He got 200 dollars for the pelt.

Pfft, when it comes to racism the suburbs of Chicago and Milwaukee make the South look like farking Haight-Ashbury.

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.

You live in Illinois like the rest of us, asshat.

On the contrary. If you want to live in the deep south, go farking live in the deep south. That's where ignorant hicks belong.


You do realize you live in the white trash capitol of the state, right?

orange storm: 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.


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.

Zeno-25: 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.

I don't have a knee-jerk reaction to this particular law, but Illinois really should be put on a long law-making hiatus.
