Heavy Montana Winter Takes Toll on Wildlife
As most of North America starts to escape from the icy clutches of another winter, it's looking like some states have taken a heavier than usual winter loss of wildlife. According to NBC Montana, parts of eastern Montana took a beating this winter and hunting licenses may be impacted this fall.
Record-setting snow and brutally cold temperatures this winter had a huge impact on eastern Montana. Wildlife experts say animals are being driven to roads and train tracks because they're easier to travel along. More than 800 ungulates have been killed by trains, including one train taking out 270 antelope.
