This is an amazing conversation. The DJ's are struggling to keep it together.

Don't laugh. I heard (several month ago) on the news that somewhere in western Washington, they have approved funding (like half a million$$) to put an overcrossing across a major road where a lot of deer have been hit. All we gotta do is train the deer to use the overcrossing instead of the highway itself. And they tell us that they lack funds for needed projects.

So there! The deer are smarter than some of the people.

Good point, John. I saw some overcrossings on a reservation in Montana that look planned well enough - with fencing and earth berms and such - that I imagine the wildlife might actually use them. I'd forgotten about those.

Though I'm still laughing at how this woman was convinced the deer read and follow the deer crossing signs.
 
Been there. Done that. Went back for more. But this time, I took this tiny ad with me:
