Odocoileus virginianus


The deer's coat is a reddish-brown in the spring and summer and turns to a grey-brown throughout the fall and winter. The deer can be recognized by the characteristic white underside to its tail.


It is the most widely distributed wild ungulate in North America. This deer was spotted within 1/2 mile of our house in semi-rural SW Pennsylvania.


The insurance industry estimates 2.4 million deer/vehicle collisions occur annually; estimating damage cost to be over 7 billion dollars and 300 human lives.
