Lawmakers and advocates seek to implement the Wildlife Corridors Act to make New Mexico roads safer

All the necessary ingredients were in place to create the perfect vehicular accident – ​​more precisely, perfectly gruesome.

It was a dark winter night, and two moose were crossing NM 68 south of Taos, probably looking for food. That’s when Garrett VeneKlasen spotted the animals while driving his aging Lexus.

VeneKlasen had just enough time to pull away from the line of the mother elk, but his vehicle swept away a calf that weighed around 250 pounds. The collision killed the smaller elk and caused “significant” damage to the vehicle.
