I found this dead badger on a road near my home. There isn't a mark on it but it's obviously been hit by a car. I live in a semi-rural area and roadkill like this is quite common. Badgers are a frequent victim closely followed by pheasants, foxes, deer (the smaller fallow deer not the big red deer) pigeons and the occasional squirrel. I myself have been in two collisions with deer in the past three years or so costing me (or rather my insurance company) many hundreds of pounds in repair costs. It is sad when our modern lifestyle costs other creatures so much.
