Owners of animals are responsible for clearing up after them. Dog fouling is an offence and needs to be reported to the appropriate district council (details below).
If the dead animal is deemed to be causing an obstruction or safety related hazard - for example dead cattle - then we will need to attend the site and make the area safe by moving the hazard/obstruction onto the verge, until collection by the district council has been arranged.
If the animal is not posing a hazard, the district council will need to clear it up. Please contact the relevant district council (details below).
Stray animals should be reported to Trading Standards Animal Health and Welfare - telephone 0845 051 0845.
