Dead Animal Removal

How to request the collection of a dead animal on the public highway

We will arrange for large dead animals found on roads and pavements to be removed.  This includes wild animals such as badgers and foxes, as well as domestic pets such as cats and dogs.

We can't remove dead animals from your house or from private property.  Contact your local veterinary surgeon or a private contractor to arrange this.

To request the removal of a dead animal, please contact Customer Services.
