Dead animals

We have a responsibility for safety on the roads. However, the removal and disposal of dead animals is normally a district council service.


If their presence is likely to cause an issue of safety on the highway, we'll move them to a place of safety awaiting collection and disposal by the appropriate district council.

In case of immediate danger to highway users please contact the police.

The disposal of dead animals on private property is a matter for the landowner or owner of the animal.
