HILLSVILLE — Deer jumping over the side of the Howlett Street bridge, possibly fleeing from traffic, have been plummeting to their death right onto the U.S. 58 bypass below, according to Hillsville Police Chief Steve Williams.
The 60-foot fall is fatal to the deer, and Williams also worries what could happen to the people in vehicles that happen to be below Howlett Street.
"I believe this makes a total of eight deer that have jumped to their death from that bridge," he said in his written report to Hillsville Town Council last Monday.
