Report dead animals
How to request removal of a dead animal
You can report dead animals found in public places by completing our dead animal removal form.
What we can do
We will remove dead animals from all publicly accessible areas. The service applies to all public sites and adopted roads managed by the council. We do not remove dead animals from private property.
Domestic pets such as cats and dogs are checked for identification to establish details of the owner. This includes using a scanner to check for a microchip and searching the national database. Please note that since April 2016 it is a legal requirement for all dogs to be micro chipped and contact details kept up to date
When details are found we will contact the owner/keeper to arrange for them to identify and collect their pet.
