Wyoming has app for collecting roadkill


The Wyoming Game and Fish Department and the Wyoming Department of Transportation recently launched new features to the Wyoming 511 mobile app to send authorization for those seeking to collect roadkill.

The app is available for Android and Apple devices and is the easiest way to request permission to pick up roadside carcasses. Collecting roadkill from select Wyoming roadways became legal in January.

Now, people can request authorization to salvage deer, elk, antelope, moose, wild bison or wild turkey from unintentional vehicle collisions with wildlife.

There are some restrictions to collection. Namely, anyone collecting roadkill must receive authorization from Game and Fish before collection. That can be done through the Wyoming 511 app, even without cellular service.
