Pulaski County’s ambulances have become something of a magnet for deer. EMS Director Bryan Corn told the county commissioners Monday that an ambulance hit a deer the night before. That’s the second time that’s happened in the span of a few weeks.
Deer are on the move this fall with hunting season and mating season in full swing. Use extra caution when driving in rural areas at this time of the year.
Deer tend to be more active in the early morning hours and just after dusk. Where there is one deer there are often several more that could follow.
