The annual estimate for badgers killed on the roads is 50,000+. The peek time is usually in September when it's the mating season and they're more mobile. Badger cubs are mostly born in February but don't venture out into the world until much before April, however adults are becoming more active as Spring approaches and this could explain how more are being hit by traffic.
They are very common at the top of Hampshire.Driving on the A31 Winchester to Farnham today I saw 8 Badgers dead on the side of the road.
I have seen the odd one now and again but never so many as today.
Is there any proof of this as it has been on the likes of FB for a long time or is it spread by mischief
They're shot elsewhere and dumped on the road to look like road kill.
They're a known carrier of tuberculosis so not popular with cattle farmers.
