Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking comment on a proposed rule to carry out a new law that allows salvaging of antelope, deer, elk or moose killed in collisions with cars, trucks and other motor vehicles.
The rule offers a framework for permits for the public to legally possess road-killed animals. Under the proposed rule, a person who wants to salvage an antelope, deer, elk or moose killed on the highway must present the animal to a peace officer or at an FWP office to obtain a possession permit.
Comments, which are being accepted through Aug. 23, can also be submitted via email to Comment@mt.gov; or via regular mail sent to: FWP - Attn: Proposed Wildlife Salvage Rule, Law Enforcement Division, P.O. Box 200701, Helena, MT. 59620-0701. Fax comments to 406-406-444-7894.
