Motorists are being warned that they face a seasonal hazard on the roads until the end of November.
 
Dyfed Powys Police say mating deer commonly roam onto the roads at this time of year as the nights draw in and are urging motorists to be cautious.
 
Sergeant Matthew Howells, the force Wildlife Crime supervisor said: “The deer rutting season is in full flow through October and November which sees increasing activity amongst the deer herds within our counties.
 
“Road users need to be cautious driving in areas where they know there are deer, where they see deer warning signs and especially on roads with forests on both sides of the road. Deer will indiscriminately cross roads and can appear before a vehicle in a split second.”
 
Police say motorists who hit a deer should report the collision immediately to police.
