Woodland creatures beware next time you try to cross a highway in Montana. A new law going into effect October 1st allows drivers to eat any animals they hit or run over.

According to Opposing Views, it applies to game animals like antelope, deer, elk or moose. Sorry, no squirrel stew or raccoon roast.

The reason for the law is, in 2011, the Montana Department of Transportation reported more than 1,900 wild animal were killed in vehicle crashes. Add to that nearly 7,000 carcasses that were cleaned up from the sides of the road.

The law states that drivers will have to get a permit before they can collect the animal, and they have to remove the body by themselves. In other words, “you kill it, you grill it.”
