When it comes to roadkill, we Ontarians are the lucky ones in Canada; we can keep pretty much any roadkill we find as long as we register it with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry. That includes large mammals (e.g., a black bear), birds of prey (e.g., a bald eagle), and furbearing mammals (e.g., a coyote). Animals on the endangered list are the only exceptions. Once it’s registered, you’re good to legally consume the meat… and serve it at your backyard BBQ.
You are the Big Broadcast Judge & Jury… what’s your verdict? If you were at a friend’s house and they served roadkill, would you eat it?
