We collect dead animals you report to us from roads, paths and public spaces, if you are unable to dispose of them yourself.

If the animal is in the canal or river, contact the Canal And River Trust on 0303 0404040.

Dead animals on the A50 or A500 should be reported to Highways England on 0300 1235000.

If you are an owner of an animal that is lost, and would like to check if it has been found or reported to the council, call 01782 234234 between 8am to 8pm, Monday to Friday or 9am to 1pm on Saturday.

We do not remove dead animals from private property.
