................
can't believe that there are people like that....
why feed road kills to animals....
if you can't afford feeding them..you don't have the right to keep them.

It is these people that gives us herpers bad names

Apartments have basements?

I think there are larger issues here beyond the feeding of road kill. Which, by the way, is not automatically a bad idea, though I'm not recommending it, and it obviously might carry some risks. I know of at least one wildlife centre that supplements carnivore diets with fresh roadkill (in the winter, so it doesn't go bad) brought to them by the MNR. And I once brought home and butchered a road-killed deer- very tasty (not illegal in Ontario, either, though you are supposed to report it).

Jeff:

back about 10 years ago, some friends hit a deer on their way to Stratford. by the time they got over their shock and came to a full stop they'd gone a few hundred feet. By the time they backed the car up to check on the deer, some guys were already loading it into a pickup truck.

I wonder if a person hits a deer, and someone else tries to take it, are they poaching your kill?

I read that second article and this is simply amazing:

"The SPCA will also give a posthumous award to a dog named Shilo, who followed her companion, 11-year-old Sarah Irmen of Littlerock, Calif., when a kidnapper forced her into a car in June. When the kidnapper tried to get Sarah out of the car, Shilo bit him and the girl escaped."

WOW What a dog.

i saw that on the news today (about the 200 animals in the apartment) as they were talking about roadkill they pulld frozen mice out of the freezer that were in bags that lookd like normal frozen feeder mice. i'm not giving this stupid woman any credit, just thought maybe they thought those were road kill.
i'v never heard of carnivorous beetles though, they sound pretty cool. i thought my step mom was making stuff up telling me the story and then they said that on the news, also in that article.
in the article they also said the washington county humane society took the animals, i live in washington county, i could go adopt one =)
