Cars are urban predators for deer

In his letter Todd Stewart says “cars are not predators.” The reality is cars and other motor vehicles probably kill and maim more wild animals than any predator.

And the damage is not confined to urban areas. Drive any highway in this country and you will find dead animals lying along the road. Even parks offer little protection.

I recall passing a dead black bear lying on the edge of the highway in Jasper National Park. A short distance ahead the driver of a semi was checking his vehicle for damage.

The death and injury inflicted on animals by motor vehicles is a serious issue.
