When humans and animals collide

From This Way Up, 12:15 pm on 4 March 2017

When the human world and the animal kingdom collide, the results aren't always pretty. Now a museum in the Netherlands is using a selection of stuffed exhibits to celebrate some historic examples. 

From the stone marten that got electrocuted and took down the Large Hadron Collider, to a sparrow that met its end after foiling a world record attempt, to a fish that got swallowed in a drinking game.

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.
