Drivers on Connecticut roads need to keep an eye out, because there may be more deer and moose crossing Connecticut roads because of breeding season.
The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and AAA reminded motorists to be watchful of increased deer and moose activity along roadways, especially during early morning and evening hours.
Fall is the peak of the breeding season for Connecticut’s moose population in the northern part of the state. The peak for deer breeding season typically runs between late October- late December.
Drivers on rural roads should head the most caution, and especially the Merritt Parkway, where animal strikes have been frequent.
