Can I Keep a Dead Animal?
Why? Why on earth would you feel the urge to keep a dead animal? Are you a necromancer – can you bring things back from the dead? In most cases, we run into people without that magical ability. But if you have it, we want to meet you!
Honestly, you probably wouldn’t want to keep any dead animals that you find. A dead skunk, dead raccoon, dead alligator, dead turtle, dead squirrel, dead opossum, dead coyote, dead bird of prey, or any other dead critter probably doesn’t have much financial or sentimental value. I guess, there are some people that might want to keep a dead animal they come across for whatever reason.
For the most part, you can keep a dead animal if you choose to, but there are laws, rules, and exceptions. Be mindful that there are special rules and exceptions apply to endangered species. For more information, we recommend contacting the Fish and Wildlife Commission to check if it’s legal to do.
Why Do So Many Animals Get Killed on Roads?
Motorists. Cars don’t kill animals the motorists do. You need to look at it from the animal’s perspective. An animal doesn’t understand roadway laws that we (humans) created. Further, there are no animal road safety programs offered by any law enforcement agency. Why? First off, animals don’t speak English or Spanish (or etc.). Secondly, they don’t do sign language either. Lastly, nor do they communicate with Morse Code with their eyelids and that’s the problem.
The State of Florida, Local City Governments, and of course the County Governments, don’t bother to educate animals. We need free community tax-funded programs that address the dangers of running across the road. They need to educate animals that it is different from running in a field or forest. Wild animals aren’t used to fast driving motorists along roadways in our local communities. If you have an issue with this too, we recommend writing your congressman.
