We received information from a new group in the area called Save People Save Wildlife. It’s very informative and talks about an effort to increase our wildlife fencing to protect drivers as well as moose, deer, cat, and elk friends.
So, I wanted to share it, below:
Hi, I just wanted to introduce myself. I’m Jenny Terry and I’m a part of a new group forming called, ” Save People Save Wildlife”. We have a facebook page up and running . Park City residents are sick of seeing so many moose,deer and other wildlife being killed on the i80 from Summit Park to HWY 40. There is a 8 mile gap of no wildlife fencing. We are talking to UDOT and DWR to fix the problem. Also, we have issues with the DWR and their conduct of relocating moose out of the Park City area. They are not following code and taking moose, relocating them and they are dying. All of our research, articles, reports, news clips, pictures and maps are all on the facebook page. Please, I’m trying to raise awareness of this issue. We people and our wildlife safe. We are going to focus on educating Park City Residents to be more moose safe so the moose don’t have to be relocated. https://www.facebook.com/savepeoplesavewildlife/ Please look at the facebook page and click “like” to show your support. Thank you!
I also wanted to note that The Salt Lake Tribune reported on Dec 15th the Utah Transportation Commission is taking public comment on how to allocate $190 million of extra funds.
1-75 mil for widening I15
2-34 mil for 9000 So.
3-26 mil for 5600 West
4-52 mil for misc projects
Public comment is now being accepted.
We are hoping to get funds allocated for our wildlife fencing needs in Park City.
