Last week I was talking to someone about the Watch for Wildlife program and he was curious about numbers. Everyone, it seems, is. It seems that unless I say x # (and x is a really large number) are killed every year on roads or make a solid case by numbers and percentages that indicates too many wild animals are killed by vehicles in our province, it isn’t an issue. It made me think. I told the story to someone else, and they agreed. It’s true. You have to know numbers. Hmm. Well, we know thousands of wild creatures die on our roads every year, but it isn’t as many as are killed by hunters, or predators, or nature, we don't think, so is it a problem? Should we care?
