CALIFORNIA - California lawmakers are thinking about making it legal to eat roadkill.
Currently, 20 states say "you kill it, you grill it" but with the possibility of it becoming legal, one butcher still says no.
"There's not much you're gonna get out of the animal after it's been hit like that," Ian Higgs said. "You can't eat dirt, you know, and the thing is when it gets hit that hard, or anything, that max amount of trauma, you're gonna have a lot of tough meat."
UC Davis says that in the past ten years, California has recorded 60,000 cases of roadkill with most being deer.
If passed into law, the bill, S-B 395 would go into effect in 2021.
