A friend of mine had a car accident where he hit a whitetail. Sadly it died instantly. This made me wonder if someone is going to check if the roadkill can still be eaten. Maybe not for humans but dog food etc. So, if roadkill is found to be safe to eat, is it further processed in the EU? Or the other way around, is roadkill always dumped?
Edit: I'm not asking for specific cases where people just don't bother eating roadkill. Like for example in Germany you always have to call the appropriated hunter. He kills the animal or makes sure that it is dead. If that guy kills it and thinks: "Seems pretty intact to me. Who cares, I'm taking it with me.", it is not instance of this question! I'm asking whether there is an official process by law or other rule-set. A process similar to this (just an analogy):
- Driver calls police
- Driver calls hunter
- Police makes insurance stuff etc.
- Hunter takes care of the animal
- Hunter calls the check-roadkill-authority
- Check-roadkill-authority adjudged the meat as process-able
- Check-roadkill-authority calls the process-roadkill-authority
- Process-roadkill-authority brings meat to dog-food-factory
