Could have been someone badger baiting
That's v interesting, it does beg the question, why are farmers chucking them in the road where they can easily be found.
Seems a bit of a dumb move.
Not at all, no farmer would want a dead badger found on his land.
Better than shopping at a supermarket
I had one hiss at me aggressively from a hedgebank as I was walking up a green lane near here.
I had to shake my coat at it quite vigorously to get it to back off - I was really surprised.
Never heard of them going for people unless cornered.
Good clean, and free meat if you get it fresh.
If we ate more squirrels deer and rabbit, it would be easier for woodland to regenerate.
As you say badgers will not normally go for people, unless cornered. They have terrible eyesight and rely heavily on smell. Maybe it took against your cologne?
More likely it thort it could smell one of its own, after a long day of fieldwork
Ahh.... That's where my lip balm went
So long as temperature is below 0c. Deer, I just shoot if necessary. Our deer are a bit bigger. Tastier, as they eat a lot of corn.
There's a guy lives near me eats roadkill almost exclusively.
The other day he was telling me about a nice big fresh one he had roasted with spuds and carrots ,lovely apparently.
Then he asked me "what do you think I should do with his bike?"
Apparently 40% of drivers consider badgers less than human......
They don't they come to your area to die...
I counted seven dead badgers and one dead fox along the A10 while driving to CamCats in Ware on Saturday.
Most roadkill I see is either too dead or too squashed to make it worth taking, although I've snagged the odd pheasant for the cats. We get a lot of dead pheasants around here, they have no road sense whatsoever.
Wouldn't mind to put some of the muntjacs around here into the crock pot, they're a PITA... My poor roses!
