Report a dead animal

We will remove dead animals from the public highway when they have been in an accident or died of natural causes.

We check animals for a microchip once they have been collected and contact the owner if a microchip is found. If a microchip is not found we keep a brief description of the animal and the location it was collected from.

More info about the journey

When reporting a dead animal we require the following information:

  • informant's contact information
  • description of the location of the animal
  • how long the problem has been there
  • when the incident occurred


You will be sent an email with a reference number. 

If the Cleansing Services team need further information they will contact you directly.


Please contact us or call 01626 215838.
