MADISON (WXOW) -- As deer activity increases in the month of June, Wisconsin transportation officials are sending motorists a warning to watch out for deer this month.
The Department of Transportation says does look for places to give birth and young deer separate from their mothers in June, increasing the activity. The agency says in four of the last five years, June ranked as the worst or second-worst for motorist injuries from deer crashes.
The agency says drivers should be especially watchful in the early morning and evening hours, when deer are the most active. If drivers spot a deer along the side of the road, they should slow down and honk their horns in hopes of scaring the deer away.
If a driver hits a deer, they should move their vehicles off the road, stay in them and call police.
