St. Ansgar, Iowa (AP) – An activist wants to persuade officials in northern Iowa to take down a deer crossing sign that warns about “suicidal deer.”
Christy Kessens said she thinks the sign makes light of mental illness.
But so far Mitchell County officials seem unlikely to change the sign.
After the sign went up along Iowa Highway 105 outside St. Ansgar in March, Mitchell County supervisors considered removing it, but the motion never advanced to a vote.
Supervisor Stan Walk in Iowa says officials wanted the sign to be an attention-getter, and it has been.
