deer collisions

An insurance company says that Wyoming drivers are less likely to hit a deer this year than last.

State Farm agent Jason Paris says last year, the chances of hitting a deer were one in 102, whereas this year, they were one in 113.

“It is encouraging to see the numbers decrease,” Paris said. “That’s a good thing for everybody, because it does cost millions of dollars. Just in the state of Wyoming it’s millions of dollars of damage every year.”
