    Some sort of really acute infection from a cut / car hitting it etc, but I would speak with the landowner / farmer and then inform the vetinary authorities. Probably nothing, but better safe than sorry.

    cant be Badgers ,Countryfake says Badgers are fluffy likkle critters that help aged and infirm Hedgehogs across the road.Theyre not wild animals that kill n maim anything that crosses their path including Hedgehogs ,Chickens and ground nesting birds .That would mean Brian May and the LACS mob are lying to the public

    Sounds a systemic condition called pyaemia which is multiple abscesses throughout the carcase. Not one for the food chain.
