A study by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has found that North Carolina auto accidents involving deer statewide have increased steadily, according to ABC 11.
About 90 percent of animal-related crashes within the last three years have involved deer, which have resulted in more than 3,000 injuries to people in North Carolina auto accidents.
Of those North Carolina auto accidents, 17 were fatal, and nearly $127 million in property damage was accumulated.
