Reporting roadkill badgers & foxes

Sadly, many badgers are killed on our roads. However, reports of road kill (RTA) badgers contribute to our knowledge of badger distribution and behaviour. We are collaborating with researchers who sample road kills to determine the disease status badgers and foxes. Road kill badgers and foxes can be reported using the submission form below. This information will be forwarded to the Veterinary Epidemiology Unit, which carries out the research. Please note that not all specimens are automatically collected as some may not be suitable for analysis. However, all records are important and will be recorded/collated. Reports are also shared with the Give Badgers a Brake campaign and Project Splatter.
