    Default Road kill

    Mmmm yum, I hear you cry. Nom nom nom.

    However, I took a long drive over the last weekend and was quite taken aback at the sheer level of carnage on view. Every 100m a pheasant, every mile or so a badger or fox, less frequently, but still several within a few hours deer, mostly muntjacs.

    Maybe its the time of year? Bounty for Red Kites and other scavengers, like those people who sometimes appear on TV programmes who like nothing better than a freshly squished dinner.

    Can anything be done? Are there any measures that can keep animals off roads or find ways across them? Can they be deterred by sound or scent? Can't we just have a strong word?

    Actually it's good sign. It indicates that there's a lot of those species about.

    Maybe. Or a lot more cars and journeys.

    It's not just an issue for the poor critters. Hitting animals can be dangerous for drivers too.

    It's a good sign. Plenty of crashed up cars and weeping, bloody accident victims mea a there are plenty more drivers out there. The ones huddled under a blanket are usually the weak, old or sick ones anyway so getting them out the way is good for the virulent BMW and Audio alphas
