Researchers may be underestimating roadkill numbers

A new study published in the Journal of Urban Ecology shows that roadkill, the number of wild animals killed by vehicles on roadways, may be underestimated due to the speed with which carcasses could be removed by scavengers for whom those animals make a good source of food. This study was conducted in Cardiff at twelve different sites.
