This Way Up: Dead Animal Tales

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:36 pm on 2 March 2017

When the human world and the animal kingdom collide, the results aren't always pretty.

From the stone marten that got electrocuted and took down the Large Hadron Collider, to the sparrow that met its end after foiling a world record bid, a museum in the Netherlands is using a selection of stuffed exhibits to celebrate some historic examples.

This Way Up's Simon Morton speaks to Kees Moeliker, the curator of the Dead Animal Tales exhibition at the Natural History Museum in Rotterdam.
