General Tso's Chicken revisited

It can also be called General Tso's Roadkill now. So, a guy sees a deer getting hauled into the Chinese restaruant and calls the police. They find the restaurant people butchering the deer in the kitchen.

The story indicates that they were not sure if it was roadkill or not, but it has been confirmed to be roadkill. Eww.

It was probably going into beef dishes. Maybe the ribs would have ended up as spare ribs.

Nothing wrong with roadkill. In our town, you can get on a list to claim roadkill after an accident where the police are called... Only trouble with roadkill is that a lot of the meat is unusable--bruised, or contaminated if there are compound fractures and/or internal injuries.

Fresh roadkill is certainly harvestable (not sure that's a word), pending organ damage and fluid leakage inside the carcass. In some states and jurisdictions, the law allows the inadvertent killer of said animal by means of motor vehicle while travelling on the public byways to keep the animal, butcher, and consume.

Why not as long as the meat is usable. Guy in the UK does it all the time. Save money if you are a meat eater.

While I don't really see a problem with consumers of meat products eating a road-killed deer, I hope no one is much relying on such a method.

Late at night, while driving through Montana, a deer jumped out in front of the SUV in front of me (one of the larger Chevrolet models, as I recall). I pulled over to make sure everyone was okay, and noticed that, while the family was fine, the SUV was toast. Had the deer jumped out in front of my POS rental PT Cruiser instead, I'd probably be dead.

Sounds hoaxish. I just heard a similar story from Savannah, Georgia at an establishment in Pooler that starts with an N.

It would almost certainly be going to a beef dish.

Well, in Savannah you really never know. Anything could be possible.
