Under the impression deer crossing signs are intended to tell deer where it’s safe to cross, a North Dakota woman embarked on a (failed) mission to get the signs moved to lower-traffic areas.
She wrote letters, called television stations, but no one seemed to want to hear what she had to say. Finally, she turned to Y94 Playhouse Radio in Fargo. They listened (and laughed) and then posted her call on YouTube.
The caller, named Donna, admitted she struck three deer on three separate occasions “shortly after I saw a deer crossing sign on the highway.”
The caller questioned why Minnesota and North Dakota departments of transportation would allow deer crossings to be on busy roads.
“Why are we encouraging deer to cross at the interstate? I don’t get it. That’s a high- traffic area,” she said.
