Trains Kill Large Number Of Animals

I thought I had been noticing a lot of roadkill in the area lately, but nothing compared to the carnage in Montana this winter. Fish and Wildlife officers say hundreds of pronghorn antelope and deer were killed by trains this winter after herds gathered on tracks to escape deep snows. Approximately 800 in fact.

The Missoulian has the story.
