I was amused that they think it's so bizaare that a pregnant woman would crave wild game. I'm assuming since she does some work with the animals and her art that she understands how fresh a corpse is upon examination. Weirdo or the ultimate locavore/sustainable paleo mom of the year?
When I was in elementary, my bus driver hit a deer on the way to school. My brother jumped out of the bus, ran the mile up the hill to alert our nearest neighbors, and within minutes they had removed the carcass and we continued on our way to class.
Later that day, those neighbors stopped by the house with a generous portion of venison, and later that week, jerky. It was delicious. :)
Random roadkill lying in the road for who knows how long? Not unless I was desperate. But if the time it was killed is known and recent, I don't see how it would be any worse than wild meat that was intentionally hunted.
When my father was in college, he somehow worked out a deal with the local police that they would call him when a deer was very recently struck by a car and he'd go get it and take it home and butcher it. I imagine that though the shattered bones and hemorrhaged organs might make certain parts unpleasant, the fact that it probably died instantly rather than being stressed might make it actually taste better.
In Northern BC a firend of ours who has Crohn's disease is on an alert list and whenever there is road kill (highway or train) he is notified to come collect the carcass because he can't tolerate beef.
