State and Feds Work on Migration Hazards

Feds Work on Migration Hazards

Wyoming Game and Fish Department has been spearheading a partnership with the Wyoming Department of Transportation, Bureau of Land Management and several volunteers to make sure migrating pronghorn and mule deer can safely get across Pinedale area highways to their crucial winter ranges. Agency personnel and numerous volunteers have been installing a smooth bottom wire on fences at a height of 18 inches allowing pronghorn to slip under it, installing wire clips that allow strands of wire to be laid to the ground when livestock aren’t present and also installing double-paired gates that can be opened in high volume pronghorn crossing locations. To date, double-paired gates have been installed at seven locations and approximately nine miles of fence have been modified with another ten miles to go. In addition, approximately ten miles of fence along Wyoming Highway 191 north of Farson has been modified so that it can be laid down for migrating wildlife.
