DARIEN,, CONNECTICUT, Aug. 20 -/E-Wire/-- Friends of Animals (FoA) concluded a nationwide survey into the magnitude, characteristics, and underlying causes of highway collisions between deer and automobiles, and has determined that hunting is an important cause of many deer/auto collisions.



This first-of-its-kind survey represents a thorough analysis of data supplied by participating state wildlife and transportation agencies, supplemented with information from insurance agencies and wildlife biologists.



FoA's president Priscilla Feral says, "FoA's report points to persuasive evidence from 33 reporting U.S. states that indicates a three fold-increase in deer/auto collisions during the months of October, November, and December: Hunting Season.



Each year, nearly 500,000 collisions between deer and automobiles are reported in the United States. Deer are killed in nearly all of these accidents, and more than 100 humans die as well. Another 10,000 humans suffer injuries inflicted by these accidents.


I want to remind you, I havenothing to do with the FoA![:@]

I am sure that the rut has something to do with that also. They have their gaurd down and get hit by cars while chasing does and running from bucks.

the only way a study could link car accidents to hunting is if after you hit a deer, you get out and ask it if it was crossing the road to avoid a hunter.
they cant do a study and find otu msot are in the fall and then pick something else that occurs in the fall and say they are related. you would need specific examples of deer getting hit by cars directly caused by a hunter pushing them out of the woods and into the road.
its personal views being passed off as science.

ORIGINAL: Ifferd

The study is non-scientific and presumes it's intended findings from the start. Those months are peak rutting months and the deer are moving around more. I wonder how hunters would account for the collisions that occur at night well after hunters are out of the woods? I doubt the study addresses that and those collisions would be directly linked to rutting behavior - not hunting.

FoA sounds like a "Friend of PETA" to me - oh well, I'm griping now... I'll hush.[&:]

Ifferd, what the FoAand the Insurance companiesare trying to say is that the states are at fault for collisions with deer and autos because of Deer Management to increase the deer herds for the sportsman.
That gives the Insurance Companies a reason to increase our insurances on automobiles or are trying to with the help of the FoA.[8D]
