Now if only animals could learn to avoid the fucking road with vehicles on it instead of running into traffic.

I imagine some do. Seems like most generations of animals have a few who adapt to new situations...

All an article like that is doing is putting crosshairs on that elk.
Any hunter who reads that is gonna want to be the one to get that elk.

How is this any news? It is nothing new that older, more expirienced animals of several game species learn to avoid certain areas or change behaviors. Boars that survived a battue for example hunker down and won't leave the thick vegitation at all as they know what happens outside.
You thead is shit, OP.

It's not solely because roads are just in their way of their natural territories. They're common grazing areas usually void of predators unless something is roadkill(thus, would attract predators). Usually there's open areas good for grazing but have close enough cover if they need it.

Something spooks them and then they flip out or don't understand when it's safe to cross.

I've seen pictures of those 'animal bridges' where it's just grass over a bridge but I don't know how effective those things are. They're always solid grass and it's elevated. Elevation+open doesn't seem too appealing and one bridge out of thousands and thousands of miles doesn't seem like it' would do much.
