No Elk Left Behind
North of Phoenix in the Tonto National Forest (does the Lone Ranger have a national forest???) I came across the sign above... testing taken to another un-natural extreme... the sad part is, over half the elk have failed the math section of the test...
Ok, I think (from a hasty assumption based on what I saw as I drove through) they have set up a motion sensor on one of the major elk trails where it crosses the road and when they move it starts a light flashing on the road... come on... how fast is an elk moving...wouldn't it make more sense to put a sensor on the highway for the cars and put a flashing light up to warn the elk???
