Tough times.

A bill allowing individuals to salvage the meat from roadkilled game animals passed last week in Montana’s House of Representatives, the Daily Inter Lake reported.

The measure passed 19-2 last week in the House and is now on its way to the state Senate, according to the newspaper. State Rep. Steve Lavin, a proponent of the bill, said the legislation is better than it sounds.

“When people first hear about it — roadkill — some of them think this is a crazy bill, but it’s not,” Lavin told the newspaper.

“Honey, I’ll be a few minutes late. I’m picking up dinner. Do we have any Possum Helper in the pantry?”
