Vote YES for wildlife.
Vehicle and wildlife collisions are a tragic part of our lives here in Teton County. However, the construction of multiple underpasses and overpasses throughout the county, as well as additional signage, safe lighting, wildlife detection systems and fencing, can help protect wildlife and keep commuters safe while reducing animal and human fatalities.
