We remove any dead animals found on the public highway (road, pavements and open spaces), City owned Parks and Cemeteries. This can include some wild animals as well as domestic pets such as cats and dogs.
What we will do
We will endeavour to remove a dead animal as soon as possible on getting a report.
If it is unsafe for us to remove the animal, we will wait for a more suitable time of day or request assistance from other agencies such as the police.
We do our best to check for any identification on domestic pets including a chip scan, and will attempt to identify and contact the owner wherever possible.
