Montana is planning the launch of a smartphone app for acquiring permits to eat roadkill.

Thump. Tap, tap. Well, there’s dinner.

Montana has legalized salvaging roadkill for food, The Associated Press says, and it’s developing a smartphone app for the permitting process.

With the approval of the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission, drivers will be able to apply from their home computers and print out permits until the app is created. Permit-seekers won’t be required to present the carcass to law enforcement for approval, the AP says, although that’s still an option. The rules require:

  • The meat has to be eaten, not used for bait.
  • It’s all or nothing: The whole carcass has to be taken.
  • The permit must be requested within 24 hours of the kill.
  • One permit is required per animal.

Some other states allow roadkill salvaging. Idaho has an online permitting process, for instance. But Montana may be the first to plan an app. Illinois allows residents with a fur-bearing permit to salvage meat and fur, Newsmax says. Alaska has a state-run program to salvage moose carcasses and share the meat with local charities. You can research your state’s roadkill rules at Marketplace.
