    How do YOU know that? Do you have Law Enforcement in your Family? Have they brought "this meat" home to you at
    some point? What PROOF do you have to substantiate such a claim? YOU should have your facts correct before making such accusations. I mean, what would cause you to make such a statement as that?
    Inquiring minds want to know!

    So who has the meat in their freezer? Did the road crew split it or did the Department of Wildlife hog it all and keep the free meat. Hell, the cops here in mesa county usually take it home to their families.
