But for animals, such as deer, it is being more active.  The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) urges drivers to use caution and to be alert for deer along roadways, especially in suburban areas.

According to MDC Wildlife Regional Supervisor John George, deer are less active in warm weather because they do not need to eat as much to maintain their body temperature. When there is a sudden drop in temperature, deer will start to move around more in search of food.
