ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- More states are passing legislation that allows residents to take roadkill home for dinner.
According to Wide Open Eats, a blog that tracks legislation, 27 states have made consuming animals killed by vehicles legal with varying restrictions.
In New Mexico, drivers must contact the Department of Game and Fish to get a permit to take the dead animal home.
People can also be placed on a list that allows the Department of Game and Fish to call them if an officer picks up road kill that is safe for consumption.
