Creative Canada


WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT?
If You Build It, THEY Will Come...

This is the actual turn-off From Banff, Alberta, Canada to the #1 highway to Calgary .

Great picture isn't it? They had to build the animals their own crossing (especially the elk) because that was where the natural crossing was and after the highway was built there were far too many accidents.

It didn't take the animals long to learn that this was their very own bridge!
And then you have some people saying 'Animals are stupid.'

Really....?

thanks - we had a parade of elk on our street yesterday morning - don't think we will build them their own pathway tho - they seem to think our yard is fine.

Wow! I love it. Not as glamorous, but in the South we have under the road cattle crossings, and, even without some necessary fencing, cows figure this out.
