Drivers warned of more deer activity in June

With deer activity typically increasing in June, area drivers are being advised to be extra alert on the roads.  According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, 515 motorists were injured last June in deer/vehicle crashes and four people were killed statewide. Chief Deputy Pat McCarty of the Door County Sheriff’s Department advises drivers to buckle up and avoid distractions while on roads, especially in rural settings



Chief Deputy McCarty adds that if a collision with a deer is unavoidable, you should brake firmly and stay in your lane.  He recommends contacting the sheriff’s department for deer carcass removal even if there is no damage to your vehicle.  If the carcass is still on the traveled roadway you should call 911.
