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 National Highways on 0300 123 5000.

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 9am to 5pm, Monday to Thursday and Friday from 9am to 16:30 

We do not remove dead animals from private property.
