There are many answers to the riddle of why moose, elk, and deer cross roads. But the mystery WCS scientists are trying to solve is where these large mammals choose to cross.

My hope is that this technology can be utilized to protect elk, moose and deer by developing protective systems such as wildlife bypasses or fencing. Most drivers know that a very dangerous time of day is at dusk for wildlife and that they cross to find sources of water. Alberta has developed some sophisticated programs to help prevent crashes with wildlife and they could be looked into as well.

Wildlife are doubtless programmed by their ancestry to cross and traverse specific areas and no doubt the imposition of our tarmac ribbons does not impede their ancestral knowledge. We never think of others when we create our mess!

I imagine these animals follow in inbuilt knowledge of where their ancestors walked before there were roads to cross. Make it safe for them. It a no brainer.
