Diss is one of the most common areas for vehicle collisions with deer in the UK, according to a recent survey.

Research by the Deer Initiative found Diss to be in the top 20 areas for these incidents, stating that this was “in many cases due to high muntjac numbers” in the area.

The initiative says up to 75,000 deer vehicle collisions occur yearly in the UK, resulting in 400-700 human injuries.
