R.A.'s organisation will have to remove all such animals from the forest areas of the track. Trap them, or shoot them....ALL!
I think the teams will all demand this action, as will all the SCCA , and other "amature" racing organisations that run there, plus the Motorcycle teams and organizers.
Chris Bristow was killed at Spa, when he hit a BIRD at speed in his GP car. This around 1959 or 1960.

It was poor Allan Stacey that hit the bird,
Bristow had his "moment" flipping his Lotus at speed after a driver error.
The gory details can be found on line.
Moss broke both his legs that weekend, and Trevor Taylor went into the trees, so it was a grim Spa that year, coming only two years after Archie Scott-Brown was killed there in his Lister.....and one can go back to Dick Seaman's death in the MB W -163 in 1939 at Spa.....not a happy place.
