November 11, 2016, Mike Bodine, The Sheet
In the battle between deer and cars, both lose … but deer lose more
What do deer, fast cars and airplanes in Mono County have in common? They all like to hang out in Long Valley. The deer reside there during drought conditions because there’s more to eat than in the dry Owens Valley, the planes live at the airport and drivers like to speed along the straight stretch of Highway 395 between the Caltrans Maintenance Station and Highway 203. The seven-mile stretch between the junction of 203 and Crowley Lake Drive has the highest rate of deer kills in Caltrans District 9.
