BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The next time you see roadkill, Vermont state officials want you to report it.

A new app created by VTrans and the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department will allow motorists to make a report.

“When we are trying to make a decision about infrastructure and how to make it permeable for wildlife we need data, and this is one piece of that tool kit that can provide data,” said Vtrans’ Chris Slesar.

“With so many drivers out on the road, it’s an opportunity to crowdsource this information to learn more about what drivers are experiencing in terms of the location of different animals, crossing or alive, or unfortunately roadkill,” said Jens Hawkins-Hilke with Vermont Fish and Wildlife.

They remind drivers not to use the app while driving.
