wildlife crossings

Driving down a dark road in the Northwest can be dangerous this time of year. There are more deer-vehicle collisions as it gets dark earlier and as deer start to move in a little more differently than normal during mating season.

 

“That makes deer a lot less cautious,” said Staci Lehman with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. “They’ve got one thing on their mind, and they’re not looking out for cars and things like that.”
