Environmental services aims

Dead animals

We aim to remove dead animals from the public highway when they are reported within two working days.  For larger animals this may take longer.

Our contractor has micro chip readers for the identification of pets, so we will attempt to identify and contact the owner wherever possible.

We do not collect dead animal carcasses from private land, however if the animal can be bagged and moved to the edge of the property, please notify us and we can arrange collection.
