6 to 700 accidents caused by deer every years !!!

JG, part of the beauty of the area, I understand the accident problem, I also see how healthy the deer population is, clearly the habitat can support the current population, as always great photography, Bob.

bonsoir quebec bob !!!

 

i guess so for the beauty !!!.....but can cause problems too !!!

roughly 15 years ago , here in town...deer started to show up on tq 5 ....then people started to feed them and this brought problems for some residents...some lost their back yard if i can say that.

......not sure if  i have the right word.....cedar hedges...kaputt for those living next to tq  5....deer everywhere in some streets ...even main street...saw one ,coming back from grooming at night on main street ...right in front of the auberge..

brought a few coyotes in town...

so, since a few years ..its prohibited to feed them now

....but always nice to see them and take pics !!!
