Mating season, earlier sunsets increase deer-car encounters

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Illinois wildlife experts warn drivers to be on the alert for deer crossing the road.

Mating season for deer is underway, and the recent time change means it gets darker sooner - increasing the risk of deer-car encounters.

There were more than 1,000 deer related accidents in the Chicago area last year.

If you hit a deer, you should call police immediately.
