The Bay Village Police would like to warn all motorists to be careful of deer. “We deal with deer vs. vehicle accidents all year long, but spring time and the fall are periods when there is dramatic increase,” report Bay Police. “If you see one crossing the street in front of you, there’s probably MORE than one, just off the street, waiting to cross.” If you hit a deer call 911 or Bay Police at 871-1234. DO NOT approach an injured deer yourself. They can cause injury to you with their hooves or antlers.
