Build It and They Will Come

From an email received today from a friend:

This is the actual turnoff from Banff National Park, Canada to the # 1 highway to Calgary. Great picture isn't it? They had to build the animals (especially the elk) their own crossing because that was where the natural crossing was and after the highway was built there were far too many accidents. I understand it didn't take the animals long to learn that this was their "road." (click on picture to enlarge)

This is actually the railroad crossing not intended for animals. In Banff we do have animal over and under passes but they are on the trans Canada highway 1 West.
