Road kill permits now available online

Posted: Updated:

Starting today on the Fish, Wildlife, and Parks web site permits to salvage road-killed deer, elk, antelope, and moose are now available.

The new law that allows for the salvage of road-killed wildlife for food became effective last month. People who salvage road-killed animals must complete a permit within 24 hours of salvaging the animal on the Fish, Wildlife, and Parks web site at no charge.

Tom Palmer from Fish, Wildlife, and Park said "They can go right on to our web site fwp.mt.gov and there is a clickable link there on salvage permits and you click that and you go directly to the place where you can get a permit. There is some information there and then you have to click an affirmation that says I understand everything, I'll do it, I am legal, and you click that you print your permit and you are ready to go."

Anyone who salvages road kill must remove the entire animal from the roadway, and then the animal must be used for personal consumption and cannot be donated or used for bait or pet food. Since the start of the online permits last night there has been three permits so far in the state and the FWP knows the web site is working without any flaws so far.
