Travellers heading West down the Trans-Canada Highway should keep an eye out for what is reported to be hundreds of pronghorn lining the roads.

The report came in just before 11 a.m. today about a massive herd of antelope packing the ditch East of Tompkins on the Trans-Canada Highway. 

Cory, a motorist travelling down Highway 1, called in the report to hopefully help folks avoid colliding with the herd. 

"Scared the hell out of me," said Cory. "I was in the passing lane and I just about hit hundreds of them."

He estimated close to two hundred of them just off the shoulder of the road. 

With the foggy conditions, Cory says visibility was good up to 100 feet. Anyone going over 100 kph would be hard-pressed to stop in time should the herd budge onto the road itself. 

It's also worth mentioning that road conditions are slightly damp with the fog, and the cold isn't helping with traction either.
