Good Fences #73

animaloverpass

Here’s something a bit unusual.  My fence this week runs along the side of this overpass.

This overpass is in Banff National Park and it’s designed for animals.  So there is not only fences along the overpass but trees as well.  There are a number of these overpasses.  They have cut down on road kill in the park which has a large population of animals, including Bison, Moose, Deer, Bear, etc.  Three cheers to Parks Canada for this innovation to save our animals!

  3. That is so cool looking. I’ve heard about places like this that help to protect the wild life from being killed on the roads. Saves humans as well.

  5. They are called wildlife crossings and it is definitely one of the greatest engineering feats. It saves animals and human lives by preventing them from entering moving traffic.
