Description: Awash in feces, blackouts, wildfires, opioids, junkyard highways, homelessness, illegals, measles, typhus, and leprosy, California's one-party blue Legislature and its far-left governor have nevertheless gotten around to the important things. According to Fox News:
California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill last weekend, making it legal to cook and eat roadkill, according to several reports. The "roadkill bill," (Senate Bill 395) which goes into effect in 2022, will allow people to salvage and eat animals they unintentionally hit or find on the road in the state, KCAL-TV reported. Those wanting to eat the roadkill would need to obtain a salvage permit in exchange for information about the animal, where and how it was killed in an effort to eliminate waste of carcasses and to better understand how to make roads safer for drivers and animals.

It's almost as if they're "gifting" the homelessness with this potential plague, as a sort of sop to yet another special interest group. Where's the applause and votes? Or they're opening up "alternative" cuisines to the public, given that their minimum wage hikes have driven so many food-producers and restaurateurs out of business. Way to compensate. While we're at it, way to go with all that public health they claim to be so concerned about. To most Californians, it's news that there was actually a law against eating this stuff, given that it's kind of obvious this isn't the first choice of any cuisine. There's an argument farther on in the story that it's better to eat the deer you might hit on the state's tumbledown highways than leave it to rot, but that just goes to show the state has been overregulated (and underinvested, and over-environmented) for years. Cripes, and why were cops forced to track down such cases in the past? Now the cops are free not to investigate this stuff, and the connoisseurs are free to chow down. What an advertisement for the state. All told, this is hardly a hot issue, just a Democrat issue. Let's see these clowns now take a bow.

The “roadkill bill,” (Senate Bill 395) which goes into effect in 2022, will allow people to salvage and eat animals they unintentionally hit or find on the road in the state, KCAL-TV reported. Those wanting to eat the roadkill would need to obtain a salvage permit in exchange for information about the animal, where and how it was killed in an effort to eliminate waste of carcasses and to better understand how to make roads safer for drivers and animals. “When you look at the statistics, the number of injuries and accidents and fatalities, it’s about time,” State Sen. Bob Archuleta, D-Pico Rivera, said, according to KCAL. “If we can save one life, save one animal, I think we’ve done the right thing here." University of California, Davis estimates 20,000 deer are killed on California roadways each year, but no department officially tracks the numbers, The Mercury News reported. “We desperately need systematic data reporting on vehicle collisions with wildlife in California, and CalTrans isn’t going to do it unless directed to by statute,” Brian Nowicki with the Center for Biological Diversity, said, according to The Mercury News. Under the law, if the animal is still alive the Department of Fish and Wildlife will decide whether or not to put it down. Opponents of the bill say that it could lead to some drivers purposefully striking animals in the road. Eating roadkill is currently illegal under state law and “unlawful possession of wildlife” could carry a $6,000 fine and six months in jail, although it is rarely cited, KQED reported.
