St. Maries Rep Pushes Roadkill Legislation

Representative Dick Harwood of St. Maries today proposed legislation to allow people with hunting or trapping licenses to salvage roadkill. Harwood says his proposal stems from a letter he received from a constituent who was threatened with arrest when he tried to pick up a bobcat on the road.

and why some people are worried this kind of legislation could lead to drivers intentionally hitting animals.
