Bad year on the roads for badgers

20 August 2007 - BBC News

Large numbers of badgers perished on roads in March Motorists are being urged to watch out for badgers following a bad spring for the mammals on Scottish roads.

After March, September is regarded as the second peak period of the year for badgers getting knocked down and killed by vehicles.

Ian Hutchison, of charity Scottish Badgers, said more than 155 died on roads earlier this year.

He said the large animals will be on the move again as they roam around marking current or new territory.

Mr Hutchison said: "It's been a bad year for badgers on the roads.

"We'd like people to look out for them and to slow down."

He added: "It is difficult to say what kind of year it has been for cubs, but the wet and warm weather should mean there have been plenty of worms for them."
