Highway Workers Paint White Line Over Squashed Polecat
A poor polecat killed on a Scottish road has received further rough treatment after bungling road workers painted a fresh white line right over its corpse. Harbour worker Ross Maclennan, 43, spotted the painted dead animal on his drive to work on the Shetland Islands.
Mr. Maclennan said, “The polecat must have been dead already because it wouldn’t hang around to get a white line drawn over it. I thought it was pretty amusing and a little sad for the creature, surely they could have moved it instead on marking a white line over the body.
I’m not sure if it was lazy or just monotony of drawing hundreds of miles of white lines so not really paying too much attention.”
