    VALDOSTA – Any driver who's hit a deer or spotted one standing on the shoulder of the road should appreciate the new fencing along portions of Interstate 75. Old fence with a height of four or five feet has being replaced with eight-foot game fence in various locations in Crisp, Turner, Tift and Lowndes counties through small Georgia Department of Transportation maintenance service contracts, according to a DOT press release. Fence replacement just concluded in Lowndes County and must be inspected by the department. The other counties are complete. Contractors were also asked to use wire to fill in bottom...
  • Roadkill can be harvested for food under new Oregon law

    Some folks in Oregon might not want to ask, when served an elk burger or a venison steak, where the meat came from. Under a roadkill bill passed overwhelmingly by the Legislature and signed by the governor, motorists who crash into the animals can now harvest the meat to eat. And it's not as unusual as people might think. About 20 other states also allow people to take meat from animals killed by vehicles. Aficionados say roadkill can be high-quality, grass-fed grub.

    Democrats are hoping to capitalize on the anti-Trump excitement in their base by staging a coordinated "Summer of Resistance" across the country that's aimed at countering the agenda of President Trump and the GOP-led Congress. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi kicked off the effort Wednesday at a rally in Dallas, where she told attendees Democrats would work to stop the GOP agenda and Trump. Rep. Marc Veasey, D-Texas, told the crowd, "You have to take a stand now," and "Now is the time to help make a difference. There are so many things you can do." Democratic activists have been...
  • Cats 1,100 times as deadly to wildlife as lead poisoning?

     Image from spiegel.com The number of animals that die from lead poisoning because of lead projectiles or lead sinkers on fishing tackle, is highly disputed. The high end estimates are about 10-20 million a year in the United States. Let us put that into perspective. Cats kill birds and small animals. Lead poisoning kills some birds and animals. Animals are killed in collisions with vehicles on our roads.  All animals die. How significant are these numbers?  In Internet wanderings I came across some numbers that show that estimates of the deaths by these various means are pretty wild. The...

    Washingtonians will be able to begin salvaging roadkilled deer and elk in most of the state starting later this year, and they won’t be able to use as many apples to lure in the live ones during hunting seasons. Earlier this month the Fish & Wildlife Commission approved both new regulations by wide margins. The citizen panel voted unanimously to allow the collection of muleys, blacktails and whitetails accidentally run down on roads in all but three of the state’s 39 counties, and elk statewide. The three exceptions are Clark, Cowlitz and Wahkiakum Counties, where ESA-listed Columbian whitetail deer roam....

    A McLennan County investigator has obtained a search warrant to extract a bullet from the arm of a biker — killed last week in a wreck — who was wounded in the deadly May 17 Twin Peaks shootout but left Waco before he was identified or arrested. The warrant, issued by 19th State District Judge Ralph Strother, is for a bullet in the arm of James Kenneth “Spaz” Anderson, 53, of Henderson, a member of the Bandidos. He was killed Sept. 3 when his motorcycle struck one or more deer on a highway in northwestern Nebraska. Authorities want the bullet...

    HELENA, Mont.- Montana lawmakers have approved a bill that would allow residents to salvage meat from wild animals accidentally killed on the state's roadways, officials said. The Montana state Senate approved HB 247, or the "roadkill bill," in March and it is now awaiting review by Gov. Steve Bullock, the Los Angeles Times reported. The bill would allow some Montana residents -- they would have to apply for a permit -- to take home certain roadkill for food, Republican state Rep. Steve Lavin said. "There are a lot of animals and a lot of roadway in Montana," Lavin said. "I've...

    WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (WKYT) - A Chinese restaurant forced to shut its doors after getting caught with a dead deer in the kitchen. It happened Thursday afternoon at the Red Flower Chinese Restaurant in Williamsburg. "We were actually joking about the, you know, the whole Chinese restaurant. You know some rumors that you hear," says Katie Hopkins, a customer of the Red Flower restaurant. But, Hopkins and her friends never imaged what would happen next, after finishing up a buffet lunch. "Two of the workers came in wheeling a garbage can and they had a box sitting on top of it....

    JOHNSTOWN, Pa. — A Pennsylvania Department of Transportation official says a crew couldn't avoid painting over a dead raccoon when they put new double-yellow lines on a western Pennsylvania road last week. But the Tribune-Democrat of Johnstown reports Thursday that a motorist pointed out the mistake before it could be cleaned up. Sean McAfee tells the newspaper he almost wrecked his motorcycle because he was laughing so hard when he saw the freshly painted road kill in Johnstown on Aug. 2.

    Two days after Minnesota Department of Natural Resources officials brought in a mystery carcass, found in rural Douglas County, no positive identification has been made. D.N.R. Area Wildlife Supervisor Kevin Kotts said Friday that after examining the remains, there are no clear signs of it not being a badger, however its longer tail is inconsistent with badgers he has seen. Kotts said there are clear signs that the animal was hit on the road, suffering skull fractures, but an intact jaw could help determine a positive identification. He said he expects fur trappers who have more experience with local mammals...

    If only this were a coalition of the left and the right working out differences. But alas, it’s just a coalition of mostly liberal politicians who used to label themselves by a political party and now would rather fly stealth. Sigh. If you are not familiar with “No Lables”, no worries, it’s brand new and they certainly deserve a Hat Tip for brevity. Here’s their declaration: We are not labels – we are people. We care deeply about our country. We are frustrated and concerned about the tone of politics. We are passionate about addressing America’s challenges. We are Democrats,...
