Ohio bill would let drivers keep dead feral hogs



Published: Wed, October 30, 2013 @ 5:07 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio drivers who kill feral hogs on the highway could keep them under a bill passed by the state House.

The measure also would let drivers take home any wild turkeys or wild boars that become road kill. The bill cleared on a 94-1 vote today, sending it to the Senate.

Motorists that want the dead animals would have to report the accident to a wildlife or law enforcement officer within 24 hours. The officers would be required to investigate and give the drivers certificates for legal ownership.

The bill would let another person, institution or charity take any unclaimed wild turkeys.

The measure also adds feral hogs to Ohio’s game list, which is regulated by the state’s wildlife chief, who sets rules for hunting seasons.
