End of the road for the badger

This morning, coming back home, I saw a badger, dead on the side of the road at the end of the village. Its beautiful fur was shining under the sun.
It may have been killed by a car last night. Indeed, badgers are active during the night while sleeping in their hole all day long.
Badgers (Meles meles) are short-legged omnivores in the family Mustelidae

A badger is also one of the characters of the saga Redwall written by Brian Jacques, that one of my sons enjoyed so much when he was ten years old.
