Warning over deer strikes on the roads
COMMUTERS across East Dunbartonshire are being advised to look out for deer crossing local trunk roads.
The deer rutting season is at its peak and Scotland TranServ has identified the A82 between Renton and Alexandria, and the A82 between Dalnottar and Dumbarton as potential hotspots for deer strikes.
Isla Davidson, Scotland TranServ’s Senior Environmental Specialist, said: “Deer are often more mobile at two particular times each year.
“October and November is the rutting season for the larger deer species, when adult males challenge each other. Deer are particularly active around sunrise and sunset which, at this time of year, coincides with the peak commuter time when there are more vehicles on the road.”
