animal víctima de la carretera

Sorry--there's no Spanish equivalent, at least not for the countries I'm familiar with (Spain, Mexico). This is the explanatory phrase I located in Termium:

animal víctima de la carretera

as far as I know there is no slang expression for this in Spanish.

It would be: animales atropellados por automovilistas.

Good luck! :)
