Quite a hazard! In my area the only hazardous wild animals we have on the roads are kangaroos.

Good POV to put it in the context. I like the white and the black horn.
When I was in Oz, there were loads of localised warning sign, but what appeared was always the animal they didn't mention!

Great one Herman, but he looks a bit like a bull who's horns have slipped to a moustache position. Don

With the number of dead badgers on our local roads a sign would make no difference!! Never seen a warthog in the wild they look very amusing on telly.

What a great sign, the only ones we get here are ones for sheep, cattle, horses and deer and very occasionally for toads and frogs crossing the road!
