It is imperative that the migration routes of wildlife not be impaired. Fencing is a major factor of the problems that are encountered.
In Wyoming, fences are used to keep range animals in or out of an area. But according to Tony Mong, the Cody Regional Wildlife Biologist with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, wild range animals, such as deer, elk, or antelope, can get caught up in fences - or worse, cause the animals to run back into the roadway.
Wildlife fencing has become an issue and the Absaroka Fence Initiative, has been established.
All the resources they have available to help keep wildlife - and motorists - more safe has been established by landowners, wildlife organizations and agencies.
