We remove any dead animals found on the public highway (road, pavements and open spaces). This includes wild animals such as badgers and foxes, as well as domestic pets such as cats and dogs.
What we will do
We will remove a dead animal within 4 hours of getting a report within working hours. If the report is made outside working hours it will be dealt with within 4 hours of the next working day.
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.
