We assume they mean the sex of the road kill.

Nope, sadly even a lot of the animals up here are gender-fluid.

Is this a "euphenism" for hunting with a vehicle?

Just asking...

So could somebody fill out part of the form and just add the location later? I'm asking for a friend...

Get me an application out of the glove box. I think that was the neighbor I previously had words with.

Maybe it's a yes-or-no question?

I'm Larry. This is my brother Darryl and my other brother Darryl.

No Sasquatch?

Is there a form for skunks ?

Skink would be more than mildly upset over the lack of roadkill choices. Man, there's possoms. raccoons, the ever popular flat squirrel and many other tasty slow animals that will simply go to waste under this petty law.

Salvaging road kill has been a controversial issue for years, not because of culinary questionability, but because states want to make sure animals aren't poached or deliberately hit. Most states that allow it require inspection by a police or conservation officer, but in large western states, this is not always practical.

Decades ago, when I was teaching environmental education, I had to get a state scientific license for the "practice of mammalogy," and file an annual report of every animal salvaged for dissection, taxidermy, etc. (including skunks, Clankie). Even so, if a deer was involved, I phoned the C.O. with a heads up in case the story got back to him. Nobody except the state much cared if I stopped for a skunk.
