Wildlife and You

Watch out for wildlife on rural roads.  Many species are more active during dawn and dusk, particularly deer and moose during the fall mating season. 

  • To reduce the chance of a collision; stay alert,
  • drive at a speed appropriate to the conditions,
  • reduce speed at night or where wildlife frequently cross (i.e. wooded areas or near water),
  • look for more than one animal as some species travel in groups,
  • leave plenty of room when driving around an animal, as frightened animals may run in any direction
