While we still don’t know much about how the larger population count has been affected, many deer have been spotted. If you happen to be driving on Big Pine Key — where most of the deer live — anytime in the near future, please exercise extra caution, as the fence along US1 that kept them off the roadway for a few miles is largely down. The nighttime speed limit is 35 mph for that reason. Thanks!
Many of you have asked how the Key deer managed through Irma. We thought we’d share some of the beautiful pics taken by MyFWC :
“While assisting with relief efforts for Keys residents impacted by Hurricane Irma, I was lucky enough to see some endangered Key deer! It was inspiring to see several of these small deer in No Name Key despite the devastation caused by Irma.” (Carol Lyn Parrish, South Region Public Information Coordinator)
