Deer capture planned along I-280

Drivers on Interstate 280 may spot California Department of Fish and Game officials using dart guns and net traps to capture, collar and release deer today through Sunday.

"All captures will be conducted from specially marked California Department of Fish and Game vehicles, but at a glance the dart guns may look like rifles and we don't want to alarm motorists,” a California Highway Patrol official noted in a media advisory.

University of California, Davis researchers will be studying deer movement in the area for 18 months. The CalTrans funded project aims to reduce the number of deer-vehicle collisions along I-280.
