Senate passes measure to allow drivers to keep road kill - 05-02-2010, 01:35 PM

April 29, 2010, by Ernie Suggs

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Georgia is one of the top 10 states in the country in deer-related auto accidents. Now, drivers can get some just desserts – or dinner.

The Senate gave final passage to SB 474, which allows drivers to keep any bear or deer that they might run over. The so-called Road Kill Bill, carried by Sen. Don Thomas of Dalton, passed 47-0.

“This is hot of the grill,” Thomas said, tongue planted firmly in cheek. “And I urge you to support it.”

According to the bill, “Any person may take possession of native wildlife which has been killed by a motor vehicle.”

That was not always the case – at least with bears.

In the past, if someone hit and killed a bear, the Department of Natural Resources could take it to mount or place in a museum.

Thomas said drivers now have the option to keep their bears as long as they report the accident to DNR within 48 hours. They don’t have to report a deer strike.
