Deer in Crow Wing County

Crow Wing County sheriff Todd Dahl says auto-deer crashes are up. He tells KLKS, with the recent rain there are more insects in the woods. As a result, fleeing deer are on the move, many times into the path of auto traffic. The sheriff says it is not uncommon to see 15 deer along 10 miles of road. Often, where there is one, there are more. Dahl says it's not the first one spotted that causes the accident, but the second or third. He says, like the weather, they are unpredictable. So, the county's top cop is urging motorists to slow down, especially at night when visibility is limited.
