Report a dead animal

How we respond to reports

We aim to remove dead animals that are on public land within five working days of receiving a report. There is no charge for this service. We may take action sooner if it's upsetting residents.

If it's an emergency and the animal is blocking the road or pavement, you can contact us.

What you need to tell us

To ask us to remove a dead animal, you will need to tell us:

  • where it is
  • roughly how big it is

You can also provide photographs, if it is safe to do so.

Make a report

You can either:

  • sign in to your MyAccount to continue with your report
  • continue anonymously

Any data collected as part of the application will be used in accordance with data protection law and the UK GDPR. Find out more about how we process your data.
