Collisions with Wildlife
One of the under-recognized threats wildlife pose to human interests is
by collissions. Collisions aer tragic events that not only put at risk human
life but frequently results in the death of the animal.
Did you know?
In 2004, deer strikes to vehicles cost over 1 billion dollars in damage in the U.S?
of birds die each year hitting windows, powerlines, vehicles, and other
structures. Some of these strikes can endanger human-life such as when birds
interfere with aircraft.
