Badger Love

As many will remember I've had my obsessions with road kill over the past few months (something to do with driving over 100 miles a day!) .

Yesterday evening there was a badger curled up on the side of the road. He'd obviously been hit and made it as far as he could off the road but no further before curling up and dying.

This morning there was a second dead badger curled over the first one as if in a protective manner, as if hugging it.

This had me thinking, as badgers are also creatures that mate for life,...

if I lost my mate would I consider it a better fate to die with my loved one,
or would I be too distort to even notice the on coming car?
