    Was it the world's largest badger? Did he die, or is he stuffed and on the mantelpiece?

    Otherwise, there is a big demo in BKK today. Or it could be big.

    The badger was a fully sized adult dog - I hit it at 50 mph; I'll find out next week if the insurance people will write it off or not

    ^^ thats the fucking thing; I couldn't find the badger

    they could possibly write off the car if they don't want to fork out to ensure that the motor looked the same before I hit the badger.

    I paid 2k for a Toyota Yaris at 9 years old and only 16,000 on the clock.

    I didn't think it done that much damage when I hit it; only heard a thud. I had to go back the next day to find the numberplate; the farmer had placed it against the tree. Must have moved the badger too.

    England is fucked. Even the badgers have to have numberplates.

    Chav badger. Probably ran off to die somewhere. Bummer. Shame about the car, too- Yaris is a nice little runabout, but they do bend easily. That's 2k squids at 16,000 miles? Sounds a great deal. In the US you probably would have hit a deer if you were unlucky (you might not be in any shape to be posting now, driving a Yaris) or a raccoon for similar effect to a badger. I once saw a big boar raccoon get run over by a Tercel- was in the car, and the coon took the full force with the rear wheel bouncing over him. We stopped and looked back to see him get up and run off, which is a good thing because the softie that was driving thought we should try to "save" him. Bad idea.

    I heard about a guy who hit a panther in Florida, chucked the unconscious cat into his car and was driving to a vet when kitty woke up. The man escaped unscathed, but his car interior didn't.

    som nam na, why pick it up - fuck the panther; I wouldn't pick up a fucking badger, nasty viscious TB ridden things

    saying that I was worried if stopped by the police for a road-worthy inspection that I hit a badger in case it was a protected species

    The Florida Panther (cougar sub-species) is endangered, although I doubt its numbers are quite as low as thought because they do manage to get hit by cars a lot. They tend to walk along the roads looking for roadkill.

    Are badgers endangered at all? I've heard hedgehogs' numbers are dwindling, which is kind of sad.

    I think they were endangered; but most things would be listed as endangered and then the next year or so as pests

    Next time you're out looking for a roadkill, nail a swan. That should piss HM off a bit.

    Drbob flounced, blackgang was jailed for pretending to be a war vet, Jetgorgan has no idea who her grandfather was as the girls never kept details of their customers.

    Thats about it.

    And BkkAndrew has retired from getting his badger out in public places and pased the duty over to some bloke called Passengers!

    DD has camped out in the gay area of Jomtien waiting to get celluloid proof once and for all putting this debate to bed.

    The badger is a protected species. It is protected from hunting. Unless you had a vendetta against the badger, and a car full of ferrets,i think it would be classed as an accidental death.

    The farmer now has a lifetimes supply of shaving brushes.

    There seems to have been an explosion in the badger population lately. Ive seen loads of the buggers dead roadside, I do cover a lot of miles though.

    shame, they are really nice animals

    yes, they are protected but the farmers want to kill them all as they blame them for the spread of TB amongst their cattle. What should happen is they should sell their cattle and grow crops instead

    Farmers often shoot them then throw them out on the road to look like roadkill
