Coming into contact with deer is not uncommon in northwest Ohio but the frequency of those encounters will increase during this time of year. We spoke to the Commander of the Findlay Post of the State Highway Patrol, Lt. Brent Meredith, who talked about some safety tips..
Meredith said the key is to be aware of what’s going on around you at all time, especially at night when visibility is limited. Sometimes it takes an encounter with a deer or adverse driving conditions to remind us of what we should be doing behind the wheel at all times..
Deers will be on the run between October and January which is their peak mating season.
