Avoid A Collision With AMOROUS Nyack Deer
Drivers should exercise extreme caution when navigating Nyack roads during the month of November. It is the breeding season of the whitetail deer. With only one month to propagate the species, bucks run amok, often losing 25% of their body weight following the this breeding frenzy. They also use their fearsome antlers to challenge rival bucks for the right to mate, sometimes fighting to the death, but more often just to domination. They chase females day and night, with the goal of impregnating as many as possible in this small window. This rutting behavior involves chasing numerous does until a receptive (ovulating) mate is found. It’s this chasing that drives deer into the streets and in front of our cars.
There were 23,221 reported deer/car collisions in New York during 2014 and many more that did not get reported. These resulted in 5 fatalities and 1930 reported injuries. 47% of these accidents occurred between October and December, with the vast majority occurring in November. The cost in insurance dollars is in the millions in New York and over a billion nationwide.
As a driver, be alert any time you near a wooded area. Don’t tailgate and don’t speed!!! Also watch for the following buck if an antlerless deer crosses in front of your car. Let’s be safe out there.
