SNOQUALMIE — A video posted on the Snoqualmie Pass twitter page shows all of the recent activity on the I-90 animal crossings. 

According to the Washington State Department of Transportation, more than 900 animals were recorded on the crossing in May. That is up by 136 from May 2020. 

The video shows lots of deer, including some new fawns, as well as elk and their calves. 

The wildlife crossings, which include both a bridge and undercrossings, have been installed over the past few years. 

They not only allow animals to cross the highway safely, but protect humans, as well. Earlier this year, WSDOT said they have helped preserve wildlife and have kept crashes to a minimum low.
