Wisconsin DOT warning drivers to watch out for deer

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is warning drivers about more deer on the roads. 

According to the DOT, June is when you are most likely to be injured in a crash with a deer. 

Officials say female deer are looking for places to give birth and young deer separate from their mothers. 

"Even in Milwaukee County, in the heart of downtown, we've had reports of deer strikes. Even though it's only a handful a year, believe it or not, you still have to pay attention and keep your eyes open because it's going to be a very difficult situation," says Michael Pyritz with the Wisconsin DOT. 

In Wisconsin, more than 500 people were hurt in deer crashes last year and four people were killed. All four were on motorcycles.
