State Farm Insurance reports that for the third consecutive year, the number of deer-vehicle collisions in the United States has dropped. Using claims data, State Farm estimates 1.09 million collisions between deer and vehicles occurred nationwide between July 1, 2010, and June 30, 2011, which is nine percent less than three years ago and seven percent fewer than one year ago. Among those states in which at least 2,000 deer-vehicle collisions occur per year, Vermont (24 percent), Michigan (23 percent), West Virginia (22 percent), and Connecticut (22 percent) experienced the largest one-year percentage declines.
