Report a dead animal

We are able to remove certain dead animals from land owned by the Council. This includes road gutters, pavements and public paths.

We can remove:

  • Badgers
  • Cats
  • Dogs
  • Deer
  • Otters
  • Foxes
  • Farm animals

We cannot remove:

  • Hedgehogs
  • Rabbits
  • Squirrels

We are not able to remove dead animals from private land. This includes private shopping centres, colleges, schools, Parish Council and Housing Associations. This is the responsibility of the landowner and any incidents will need to be reported to them directly.

If the dead animal is in the middle of a road, report it to the County Highways department online or by calling 0300 123 2224.

Report a dead animal by using the button below. You will need to be registered and logged in to your account. This will save you having to re-enter your information and allow us to keep you updated throughout the process.
