Say Bye to the Bear Meat

A juneau homeless shelter has had to change the menu -- after learnig the state bans non-profits from recieving donated bear, fox, and walrus meat.

The shelter had been accepting bear meat for years -- using it to stretch burgers, casseroles, and spaghetti. Since finding game meat is illegal, the outfit has turned down 250 pounds of bear meat. That's a big deal for a shelter that cooks up 54,000 meals a year with a budget of only $4,500.

Many other states allow donations of wild game to homeless shelters and food banks. (Seattle Times)
