Dead fawn at side of road

Reported via desktop in the Off the carriageway (NH) category anonymously at 11:34, Wednesday 12 June 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6098036.

There is a dead fawn right at the very edge of the southbound carriage way just prior to the Ramsbottom junction. It doesn’t look like it’s been there long. If any vehicle veers over the line they will hit it.

Updates

  • Thank you for contacting National Highways about the animal on our network.

    Safety is our highest priority and any animals on the carriage way that pose a risk to vehicles and their occupants will be removed as quickly and safely as possible.

    Household pets, such as a dogs and cats, will be retrieved, and we endeavour to reunite pets with their owners if they can be identified through microchips or other identification.

    Wild animals, lying off the carriageway, on verges or the central reservation, are normally left to naturally decay. However, they will be removed if they are considered a hazard, a danger to public health or there is a statutory obligation for testing or removal.

    Our local inspector team will make these assessments during their regular safety inspections.

    Kind regards National Highways
