Officials warn of wildlife dangers on Colo. roads

STERLING, Colo. (AP) - Colorado transportation officials are asking motorists to be watchful of migrating wildlife as winter sets in.

The Sterling Journal-Advocate reports there were about 3,500 collisions involving vehicles and wildlife in Colorado per year between 2006 and the beginning of 2012. But in 2012, more than 4,000 crashes involved wildlife.

Such collisions happen year round, but there is always an increase during migration in the fall and spring. The majority of the crashes happen between dusk and dawn.
