A relatively large number of moose have been killed by cars and near an intersection in western Wyoming.

Two moose were killed in a week near the intersection of Wyoming highways 22 and 390 a few miles (5 kilometers) west of Jackson.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports that at least 116 moose have been hit and killed within two miles of the intersection since 1990.

The Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation has made a statement mentioning that the pace of road kill is increasing.

Local officials say they plan improvements to make the roads less dangerous for wildlife. Some residents say for now, signs and lower speed limits could help prevent moose deaths.
