UDOT testing new snow fence in Eagle Mountain area  December 27, 2011 Utah, Daily Herald 

The Utah Department of Transportation is testing a new type of snow fencing on State Road 73... Kim Johnson, who has been traveling SR 73 for more than 15 years, said ..."The fencing has limited open slots and miles of solid wall; the deer come through the narrow slots and become trapped," Johnson said. "I call them slaughter slots because wherever there is a slot in the fencing, you'll find a dead deer on the highway." ... Mindy Nelson, a UDOT spokeswoman, said UDOT was not aware of a deer situation.
