Snug fit wildlife fence and plank on top of wildlife overpass Oud Reemst (about 35 m wide), south of Otterlo, The NetherlandsSnug fit wildlife fence and plank on top of wildlife overpass Oud Reemst (about 35 m wide), south of Otterlo, The NetherlandsSnug fit wildlife fence and plank on top of wildlife overpass Oud Reemst (about 35 m wide), south of Otterlo, The Netherlands. This wildlife overpass connects "Planken Wambuis" (west side) to "National Park Hoge Veluwe" (east side). There is a fence (1.10 m high) and gates on the east side of the structure to keep mouflon (Ovis orientalis), a wild sheep species from southern Europe, Asia and Arabia, inside the "Hoge Veluwe". It also keeps horses and cattle in "Planken Wambuis". Roe deer and red deer can easily jump the fence. Presumably wild boar can push against the gates with hinges on the top side of the gate and pass through. Note the road was lowered to allow wildlife to see across to the other side of the structure.
