Dead animal removal

We will remove 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.

If you find a dead animal in a public place or on a public highway, please report it by calling 01392 265010 or emailing
