Road kills - An accidental wildlife crime which can be avoided

Monitor lizard road kill on Sitabani road
How many animals do we kill due to our overspeed and negligence? These animals were there before we made roads. Allow them to cross first. This photo was taken in a highway through the forest near Corbett National Park, India. It is a monitor lizard (Veranus) not able to cross the road before getting hit by a vehicle, eventhough it was early in the morning and the traffic was very less. I will be posting more of these soon to show that these are not rare occurrences. Follow this blog for mor proof.
