Wild Boars Cause 63 Percent of Animal-Car Accidents in Europe
By CJ Lotz
Car accidents involving animals are on the rise in Europe, and one study has broken down the most common factors of 6,255 accidents.
Wild boar are the cause of 63 percent of animal-car accidents, and roe deer are part of 37 percent of accidents.
Sundays are the most common days for accidents because of increased night-time driving.
The main author on the study said the group is working to create GPS systems to warn drivers of high-risk areas.
