White line gang paint around dead badger

Apparently it's not their responsibilty to move carcasses

GET THIS: A gang of roadworkers painting white lines in the middle of an A-road refused to move a dead badger because they were not "licensed or trained" to move it - so painted around the dead animal instead.

The four-legged star of this particular story had been killed on the A338 on the Hampshire-Wiltshire border roughly a week before road workers started white line painting. However they refused to move the dead animal because, according to a Hampshire County Council employee, the workers "did what they thought was best until arrangements could be made to remove the carcass."

Mel Kendal, county council environment chief, said:

"Arrangements have now been made and the gap in the white lines will be filled in, at no extra cost to the council tax payer."
