Polecat at Pennard

(c) J. Mullet
This unfortunate animal was found dead in the centre of road by Jo Mullet on Saturday 27th July 2013 (11.30am) on the B4436/ Pennard Road, Gower [SS 56781 88792]. Although never a pleasant sight, road casualties are the easiest way for non-specialists to contribute to the understanding of these and other secretive mammals. So, should you find a Polecat, Otter or any other vertebrate carcass please do make the effort to inform the relevant organisation. You can find out all about how to submit such records HERE.
