In recent weeks, there has been an increase in collisions and near-miss accidents involving vehicles and deer. Although Fermilab does its best to manage the population, this time of the year is deer mating season and they are much more active, especially at dawn and dusk. In addition, the recent snow cover causes the deer to search for food in a wider area than they normally inhabit.
