I want to ask the following question, which may be suitable for pets or politics, but I'm not really sure either way – or if it’s on topic anywhere?
Why does Peterborough City Council freeze badgers?
Peterborough City Council has released the amount of animals they freeze each year as part of an open data initiative. For 2013 this includes 101 cats, 4 dogs, 7 rodents and 6 badgers.
I've found an article in the Argus, "Worthing and Adur councils freeze 100 cats and dogs over the last two years", which states that:
Pets killed on the roads are being stored in freezers by councils in case their owners want to reclaim their dead animals.
This seems reasonable(ish) but why then does it apply to foxes, rodents, birds, deer, badgers, hedgehogs and "other".
What is the purpose of freezing these animals?
Where would this question be on-topic?
