Report dead, or missing, animals

Our Streetscene Team removes dead animals and birds. Often these will be wild animals killed on the roads. Sadly, on occasion, a dead animal may be a family pet. If this is the case, we will scan the animal for an identification chip. If we find a chip, we will be able to contact the owner to arrange:

  • delivery of the animal to the owner
  • a time for the owner to collect the animal from a local depot

If no chip is found, we will keep the animal for a few days before appropriate disposal. 

Report a missing animal

If you own an animal that has gone missing, please contact us to check whether we have collected as deceased.
