Deer, wild boar lives saved by new measures


This video from Belarus is called Red Deer. Roar. Fight.

Translated from conservation organisation Natuurmonumenten in the Netherlands:

Friday, June 12th, 2015

Along roads where the roadsides have been made wide and open, fewer collisions with wild animals will happen. These are the first encouraging results of measures taken by Natuurmonumenten.

Along two roads running through forests where many wild animals live, Natuurmonumenten made the roadsides more open last year. They are the Peeskesweg in the Bergherbos and the Sandbergweg in the Leuvenumse bossen (Veluwe region). Their verges are managed by Natuurmonumenten. Motorists now have a better view and will see game earlier, so they will be less surprised when the animals come out of the woods. Conversely, it is expected that the animals are now more alert because when they leave the forest they come first into an open space.

Fewer collisions

Along the Peeskesweg between 2010 and 2014 16 roe deer were hit (no red deer and wild boar live there). Along the Sandbergweg during the last three years, 13 wild boar, 12 roe deer and 11 red deer were hit. Since the measures, there have been two boar and one roe deer fatalities. If the number of wildlife collisions will remain low, then Natuurmonumenten will encourage road authorities, such as municipalities and provinces, to wherever possible, take the same measures.
