Last year across the state of Wisconsin, deer-car collisions were on the rise. This year that number is expected to grow again.
In 2010 there were 14 people in Wisconsin that were fatally injured due to a deer-related accident. There were 16,947 car accidents involving these animals last year alone. Mating season for deer begins late October and ends early December, therefore making the month of November one of the most hazardous months for these accidents to occur.
It is imperative to proceed with caution while on the road in Wisconsin this winter season. Deer travel in packs so it is safe to assume that if you come across one crossing the road, there are at least two that are bound to follow.
