There is the answer and a very pertinent commentI think this is a fairly silly thread to be starting in public on a pro-shooting website and one with some pretty irresponsible insinuations.
Being a considerably more solid animal than a fox, they get knocked to the side as deer do. They tend to walk along boundaries anyway given the choice. And finally, being black and white, they blend into the road markings when they get run over in the centre of the road.
Dead foxes on the road down here everywhere,seen 3 on the way home (10 mile drive)It is just odd to me that they are estimated to be at the same population levels as foxes in the UK and I almost never see a deceased fox on the road in south UK.
I almost never have seen any dead uns on the roadside in Germany so does this mean that UK badgers are just less road aware?
Insinuations??? having a larf.
