Highway toll

B.C. motorists killed 5,500 wild animals last year.

Highways maintenance contractors across the province had the thankless job of removing 5,663 carcasses, including 4,454 deer – almost 80 per cent of the total – 350 moose, 223 elk, 157 bears, 126 coyotes, and a variety of smaller animals.

The annual roadkill deer carnage compares with about 30,000 deer legally hunted in B.C.
