Re: Happy Birthday, Lesa! June 7th


I had thought of that. Even if they're caught on camera, it doesn't tell authorities who those people are. However, if there is a pattern of use at certain times of the day or night, they could station someone there during that time to catch them in the act.

Yes, they could (weekends would be a good time), but I doubt it's high on any law enforement agenda, plus that person's presence would also stop animals from using the bridge.

I think placing some obstacles in stratigic positions on the bridge could make it harder for mountain bikers... while still allowing animals to get across.

Obstacles sound like a good idea to consider. The trick would be making them difficult to get a bike through without making it difficult for animals that are larger than a bike and can't climb.

Alternatively (or in addition to obstacles), why not build a separate pedestrian/bike bridge away from an animal crossing?

I love the animal crossing bridges, and I think adding a separate BIKE lane would be good too!

[sign in to see URL]'ve never hit any animals in an open area where they could put one of those crossings. Mine have all been on steep, switchback type two lane [sign in to see URL] place for a crossing bride or [sign in to see URL] no place for either car or critter to go. emoticon

Re: Happy Birthday, Lesa! June 7th


And what kinds of critters are always getting hit there? Are they big or small? Can they climb trees or rock faces? Can they walk across a rope like a squirrel can? Are they just walking along the road because they can't do any of these things?

I'm sure something could be done, but the difficulty and expense would depend on several factors.

Deer are the biggest [sign in to see URL], raccoons....
I have hit 4 deer in my driving lifetime. And two I had to put out of their misery because the impact did not kill them. And I can tell you that having to 'take a life'....especially in such a personal hands on [sign in to see URL] my heart.

*hugs* But you did put them out of misery.

Here in Germany, where nobody carries a gun, we have to call police and an offical "hunter" to take care of injured deer.

Many don't bother. emoticon

Re: Happy Birthday, Lesa! June 7th


I had to put a possum out of its misery once. I felt bad, but I would have felt even worse if I had left it there to die slowly.

It might be possible to create safe passages for skunks and raccoons on those mountains, Queeny, but deer are a whole different story. I do know they seem to be scared away by my car's high beams at night, but the poor things might run off the edge. emoticon
