Game species raised on farms in the USA under appropriate regulations can be sold in the United States. Wild game species that can be legally hunted under federal or state regulatory authority, cannot be sold, but can be harvested for personal consumption. Game meat acquired from roadkill is illegal to take in Texas, but can be taken in 49 states as long as state roadkill rules and regulations are followed. State roadkill rules and regulation can be found in the Roadkill Art app, it is illegal to sell roadkill in the USA.
Each state has primary responsibility and authority over the hunting of wildlife that resides within state boundaries. If you have questions about the harvest of wild game species, contact your state fish and wildlife agencies, natural resources or the United States Fish and Wildlife Service for federal regulations.
Yes roadkill aids in weight loss because it is a source of protein. Protein tells the body to make more fullness hormones like peptide YY, GIP and GLP-1. It also tells the body to make fewer hunger hormones like ghrelin. Protein in your diet helps you stay full and eat less.
Studies have also shown that a higher protein diet can help boost your metabolism and preserve muscle mass, two factors important for maintaining a healthy weight.
According to State Farm Insurance November is the month with the highest amount of animal collisions with an estimate for 2023 of 297,000 collisions. As the largest insurer of cars in the U.S., State Farm reports over 1.8 million auto insurance claims were filed across the industry from July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2023 involving animal collisions.
Each state cleans up their roadkill, which trickles down to cities and counties who decide how. In the state of South Carolina according to the state’s Department of Natural Resources the deer population is about 750,000. In the city of Spartanburg, SC the Department of Transportation is responsible for keeping interstates and roads clean in their city and county limits. But with 42,000 miles of roads and bridges to maintain, Spartanburg transportation officials say they need help removing roadkill, which is the case in many states, cities and counties.
You can help the Department of Transportation and the police who lack man power these day for roadkill removal, in your state by reporting roadkill in the Roadkill Art App. It is dangerous to get out of the car on major highways to make reports but if it is safe, pull over and make a report without leaving your car. Most important for officials is marking the location, the first step to making a roadkill report.
Yes the Red Wolf's in captive facilities are not fed dog food or nice juicy Mc Donald's burgers. They are treated and raised as though they are living in the wild, fed roadkill by facilitators.
There are 44 captive breeding facilities for the red wolf nationwide, which are a vital element of red wolf recovery. (See the link for locations) Currently, there is a captive population of approximately 230 wolves. These wolves help to ensure the survival and genetic diversity of the species.
The Red wolf is one of the most endangered canids in the world today and is classified as "critically endangered" on the International Union for Conservation of Nature's (IUCN) Red List. The Red wolf is listed as an endangered species under the Endangered Species Act, except in a portion of northeastern North Carolina where it was reintroduced as a nonessential experimental population at Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge. This population is the only known wild population of Red wolves. Today, approximately 20 are known to be in the wild.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service established a captive breeding program for the Red wolf in 1973. Biologists began to remove remaining red wolves from the wild in an effort to save the species from extinction. Over a period of six years, 400 wolf-like canids were captured and of those, 17 were Red wolves and only 14 of those successfully bred in captivity. By 1980, the red wolf was considered extinct in the wild.
If you are a Roadkill Art App member and there is a facility near you stop in and introduce yourself let them know you will help feed the wolves by reporting roadkill.
