Animal care and control

Report a dead animal for removal

We will remove dead animals from public highways and council-owned land. Once removed, all animals are disposed of as quickly as possible for health and hygiene reasons.

When reporting a dead animal, please tell us:

  • the location or address where the dead animal was seen
  • brief details of the animal, such as type, colour, size
  • the time you saw the animal

Login to our My Account services, then select 'Environmental reporting', 'Add a report' and choose 'Dead animal removal' from the category list. You can create an account if you don't already have one.
