Dead animals

Dead animals will be collected and disposed of from all public areas and highways within one day of being reported.

If pets are micro-chipped, we'll make every effort to inform the owner.

We don't send teams to pick up smaller dead animals like rodents, reptiles, birds, or small pets.
