Bitlocker drive encryption and Mac OSX, open/read/access Bitlocker encrypted drive on Mac OSX

I have a simple question - Can Mac OSX open/read/access a hard drive encrypted with Microsoft's BitLocker drive encryption? This is a feature new to Windows as of Windows Vista, and has been improved in Windows 7/8/10. Windows 7 adds the ability to encrypt removable drives. Does anyone know whether Bitlocker is compatible with Mac OSX?

The short answer, you're toast. Mac OS X or anything operating system other than Windows cannot read a BitLocker encrypted drive or volume. But there is a Bitlocker To Go for Mac tool called M3 Bitlocker Loader for Mac which allows you to read Bitlocker encrypted external hard drive and flash drive on macOS 10.12 (Sierra)‎ and Mac OSX 10.11/10.10/10.9/10.8/10.7.
