Fall is the rut (breeding season) for elk, deer, moose and bison.
With the animals being more active, it's likely they'll be closer than usual to the roads.
"We do have a reduced speed limit within the park and that's because we have a lot of active wildlife here," said Catharine Brazeau, communications officer at Elk Island National Park
In EINP or on any roadway, stay alert and vigilant.
"Often when (drivers) see an animal it's pretty exciting, might be the first bison they see, so often people want to get out of their vehicle to photograph the animal. We ask that people don't do that," added Brazeau.
Male animals are also more aggressive during this time.
In the case of a potential wildlife collision, slowing down as much as possible is the recommended first step, swerving is not advised.
