Wake Up!

Many drivers seem to be asleep when it comes to wildlife.  I recently saw two incidents that got me thinking about this.  First, I saw two robin having a territorial, aerial battle.  I could see that they were very involved in their battle and heading right towards the road.  I immediately slowed down. The driver in front of me did not slow down at all (his brake lights did not go on.)  Feathers went flying as one bird was destroyed.  A few days later, I was driving up Route 5 in Deerfield when I noticed a young bear heading across the road.  Again, I immediately slowed down.  Again, the driver in front of me did not slow down or brake.  Luckily, the bear escaped by inches.  With all the wildlife in our area, we all need to stay alert!
