Just realize that road kill is a BIG joke in East Tennessee - we even have
menus for the "Roadkill Café".

	It seems totally extreme, and to me, unprofessional, to suggest to
anyone to
	handle, process and use tissues from animals of unknown origin. The
cases of
	rabies, at least in North Carolina are on the rise, visit
	Also, you can learn more about protecting yourself about rabies at
the following
	CDC web site

	However, there are other potential zoonoses (since animals may serve
	reservoirs for zoonotic pathogens that cause infections in animals
and are also
	transmissible to humans). The list may be long and can include
	brucellosis, leptospirosis, anthrax, salmonellosis, E. coli
	arbovirus infections (Venezuelan equine encephalitis), etc. You may
want to
	consult a professional.
