How do we deal with dead animals?

In the unfortunate event that any dead animals are found on public roads and pavements we will remove them.  We do not remove animals from gardens or private properties.

Our Contractor will remove the animal as quickly as they can (usually the same day or within 24 hours if reported Monday - Friday) and scan for a microchip.  Where possible we will re-unite the animal with their owner.

To report a dead animal that you think should be removed contact us or use our online form.
