I had a few days away with the uni friends down in Cirencester this weekend and when driving around (and also driving home to Leicestershire up the Fosse Way) I noticed a considerable amount of Roe carcases lying in fields not far from the roadside, at least half a dozen, and one of my friends took a picture of another one near Witney, Oxon. All very similar, head on, spine and ribcage freshly picked by crows and foxes, legs gone. I don't remember ever seeing a carcass lying out in a field like that in the past, let alone 6/7 in one weekend.
Any thoughts on a cause, sudden cold snap? Local disease? Maybe a wide ranging big cat
