Watch out for wildlife on highways

The Ministry of Natural Resources is putting out a traditional fall warning for motorists. Watch out for moose, deer and even elk on northern highways. The MNR says animals are looking for food and mates this time of year and are very active at dawn and dusk. It means they’re crossing highways when lighting is poor for driving. One thing to remember about deer is they travel in groups, so if you see one on the highway, slow down because more are likely to follow. Other tips include giving your horn short bursts if you see an animal on the highway shoulder so it knows something is near. If it’s nighttime, blink you headlights to catch the animal’s attention so they move out of the way. Above all slow down, so you have time to react in case a moose or deer wanders onto the highway.
