HELENA, Mont. (AP) — In a story Oct. 10 about Montana approving rules for motorists to salvage roadkill for consumption, The Associated Press, relying on the comments of a Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks official, reported erroneously that a smartphone application will be developed for drivers to apply for roadkill salvage permits using their smartphones. The online permits will only available through the state agency's website, and a separate smartphone app is not planned.

Roadkill permits? You can go online for that
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Montana officials want to make salvaging roadkill for the dinner table as easy as a mouse click.
State officials plan to let drivers who accidentally kill big game to print out permits at home that allow them to harvest the meat for food.
State lawmakers earlier this year passed the bill allowing motorists to salvage the carcasses of deer, elk, moose and antelope struck by vehicles. They left it to the state Fish, Wildlife and Parks agency to sort out how to issue roadkill permits.
Wildlife commissioners are expected to approve regulations Thursday that allow people to go online for the permits.
