Dead animal removal

Report it! - report a dead animal using our online form.

We provide a free service for the removal of small dead animals (i.e. average household dog size) from all roads, pavements or publicly accessible areas and we aim to remove any dead animal on the same day of it being reported to us. This service includes wild animals such as foxes as well as all breeds of domestic cats and dogs.

Smaller animals such as squirrels, rabbits, hedgehogs and birds will be removed as part of our normal street cleansing operations.

Please note that we do not remove dead animals from private residences.
