Roadkill Poachers?

The Associated Press recently reported that the Ohio Department of Transportation is officially "fed up" with "roadkill poachers." These are folks who pillage hooves and heads from roadside carcasses, then fashion them into "novelty items such as chairs, couches, gun racks, chandeliers, belt buckles, knife handles and even marijuana pipes," according to AP. ODOT says that though roadkill poaching is illegal, the numbers of poachers are up in Ohio. But we're still trying to keep pace with Kentucky. Just last week, a black bear was found headless there. —Denise Grollmus
