RAWLINS, Wyo. — About 6,000 deer used an underpass north of Baggs to get across Wyoming 789 safely last winter and spring.

And next year they will have another underpass about three miles south of the first one.

Wyoming Game and Fish biologist Tony Mong says the second underpass is being paid for by Game and Fish, the Wyoming Department of Transportation, Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative and the Wyoming Wildlife and Natural Resource Trust Fund.

Mong siad that the second underpass should be completed next summer.

He says besides deer, elk, coyotes and even bobcats have used the underpass.
