Wildlife Bridge In Utah Is Working So Well & This Adorable Clip Proves It (VIDEO)

Why didn’t the animals cross the road? Because they had a bridge, of course! In an effort to reduce accidents on the highway, officials created a wildlife bridge in Utah and it’s been pretty successful so far.

Back in 2018, the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources created a special bridge over Interstate 80, in an effort to reduce incidents involving vehicles and animals.

The idea was to create a safe passage for wildlife to cross the busy six-lane highway, ultimately resulting in fewer collisions.

A new video, shared recently by officials, shows that the bridge appears to be working!

In a clip posted on Facebook, multiple animals can be seen using the overpass to cross safely.

This includes elk, moose, small mammals, black bears, coyotes, and even, apparently, a porcupine!

According to CNN, the bridge features things like rocks, boulders and logs, to make it a more appealing option for critters.

"It's working!" the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources wrote.

"As you can see, the 2nd year of this overpass has been successful at helping wildlife safely migrate over busy Interstate 80 and helping motorists be much safer as well,” they added.

Officials ended their message by reminding humans to keep off of the animal-friendly overpass.

Pretty cute, eh?

Earlier this week, a wild porcupine made its way into Sarma the tiger's habitat, and despite her being massively larger than the prickly lil' rodent, the poor thing came out of the encounter with over 100 quills embedded in her paws.
