Vermont Fish and Wildlife will supply three animals that were injured or killed on roads and highways for the meal.

“The idea is to get people connected to their local food sources, but also to showcase the traditions of Vermont,” Chef Doug Paine told WPTZ.

The supper will cost $75, and proceeds from the dinner will go to Vermont Fish and Wildlife. 

"Vermont's quirky. Let's keep it that way," Kate Paine told WPTZ.

Chef Paine says it will be delicious and well worth trying.
