Road ecology blog: Wildlife trail at fence-end (fence end run), US Hwy 95, Bonners Ferry, Idaho, USA. This is an indication that there is a concentration of wildlife crossings at the fence end ("fence-end run"). This can result in a concentration of collisions at or near the fence end. It is important to start and end fences at locations where the probability of fence-end runs is minimized. The following paper describes where to start and end wildlife fences and it summarizes suggestions for fence-end treatments:

Huijser, M.P., E.R. Fairbank, W. Camel-Means, J. Graham, V. Watson, P. Basting & D. Becker. 2016. Effectiveness of short sections of wildlife fencing and crossing structures along highways in reducing wildlife-vehicle collisions and providing safe crossing opportunities for large mammals. Biological Conservation 197: 61-68.
