GREEN RIVER, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is reminding people not to pick up any road-killed animals or wildlife parts along the highways.

The game department says it’s both illegal and unsafe to take wildlife or any parts including antlers from along any roadway.

Office managers at the Green River Game and Fish Office have received multiple reports of motorists stopping alongside roadways to remove meat off of dead big game animals and in some cases cutting the antlers off.

Game and Fish officials say stopping along any roadway is dangerous for the motorist and anyone else who might pass by the stopped vehicle. Also, they say meat from road-killed wildlife carcasses is not fit for human consumption.
