CALIFORNIA-- A proposed law could make it legal to eat roadkill in California.

It would allow people who accidentally hit and kill wild animals on California roads to recover edible portions. California is following more than twenty other states that have already made eating roadkill legal.

A UC Davis website documenting roadkill incidents says the observation system recorded 60,000 cases of roadkill collisions most with deer.

If passed, the law would go into effect on January first 2021.
