Pam Noesner says she is familiar with the cow and calf moose that were stranded on the island in the Shoshone River. She says she saw the pair shortly after the calf was born. She says the cars were lined up by the hundreds to photograph the pair. More recently, they say they've seen the calf but not the cow. She figures the cow was hit by a car. It makes her really angry. She wishes they had more signage to stop animals from being killed. Werner says they travel up and down the North Fork, and they see the remnants of animals being killed: marmots, etc. Pam talks about a beautiful young bull moose that was grazing round their cabin, and he was killed by a car right in front of Mormon Creek. We do have moose here. They get hit a lot, more than people know. We travel 50 to 55 and people just ""gun it"" to go around you. We also cycle, and someone who passed on the right almost caused an accident. Werner says he wishes there were more highway patrols on the road. He says he had to stop to try to get a ewe and lamb across the road. He says they need to slow down. She says education is key. She wishes they, and the Shoshone National Forest would put up signage. ""I think everyone wants to see wildlife, but if they knew how much wildlife was killed they would be horrified.""
