Tell me, how much roadkill through the Canadian Rockies have you personally seen?
The link said most of the animals killed in Alberta were deer. I think sheep, if any were killed, must be included in 2% other animals. It's sad that things we enjoy so much, like easy automobile access to wilderness areas, carry a high price for the animals that live there. (And I will admit that I very much enjoyed a car trip in the Canadian Rockies several years ago.)

I don't know about Canada, but some of the US National Parks have strictly limited car access.
