Deer blamed for increasing numbers of road accidents

The increase in the number of Roe Deers is being blamed for a rise in road accidents in Scotland.
Many have been left to believe that it is now one of the country’s most dangerous animals.

New figures suggest that the deers is now involved in around 10,000 road accidents every year, on average leaving almost 70 humans injured.

The online magazine, the Scotsman who recently published the figures said: “The rapid increase in roe deer numbers over the last few decades has made the animal a particular hazard on roads.”

There are many animals in Scotland that pose a threat to humans but they confirmed that “one of the leading contenders is the roe deer”.

Drivers are now being asked to drive with caution as the seemingly shy animals continue to make a habit of appearing on busy roads.
