  • Thank you for contacting Highways England concerning a dead badger along the A1. I appreciate you taking the time to bring this matter to our attention.

    I appreciate how distressing it can be for our customers to see animal remains lying by the side of the road. We routinely remove such remains when they are found in the live carriageway and always endeavour to repatriate pets if their owners can be identified through microchip implant technology.

    Animal remains that lie further away from the carriageway itself are more difficult to routinely locate. Such carcasses are therefore only ordinarily removed if they present an ancillary hazard, or danger to public health. Thank you again for contacting us. Kind regards Highways England
