Drivers need to be more aware

In response to James Williams’ letter, Dec. 18, 2012 re: “Mule Deer Mortality Senseless.”

I have been trying to raise this issue myself. Every trip to Williams Lake or 100 Mile House shows signs of a bloodbath on Highway 97 where a deer has been struck by a vehicle.

I have suggested to the Williams Lake Tribune and the 100 Mile House Free Press that they ride with the people who have to pick up the broken bodies of the animals who died on the road and write a column on the experience.

It should include graphic pictures to shock the driving public. We also need a body count, actual numbers.

How do the men feel at the end of the day after shovelling dead and dying animals from the highway?

Drivers should be more aware. Slow down!
