Remove a dead animal from public space

The council will remove dead animals (such as: dogs, cats, ponies, horses, badgers, foxes and deer) from open spaces that are accessible to the public. This includes pavements and highways. We do not normally remove smaller animals and birds, in these instances nature is allowed to take its course.

You can use the form below to report a dead animal on open, public land


Please note: landowners are responsible for dead animals on their own property and we cannot remove dead pets from domestic homes.
