Report a dead animal

We are responsible for the removal of dead animals found on public land. This includes:

  • wild animals such as badgers and foxes
  • domestic pets such as cats and dogs

When we remove a domestic animal such as a cat or dog, we will try to identify and inform the owner from a collar or microchip where possible.

We are unable to remove dead animals from private property. This is the responsibility of the property owner.

What we need to know

Help us locate the problem quicker by providing:

  • images (if safe to do so)
  • a description of its location (for example, outside house number 25)

You must have an email address to use the online reporting system (FixMyStreet)
