Dead Animals - Removal

A free service is provided for the removal of dead animals from all public accessible areas. You can report dead animals on the road using our online form.

We do not remove dead animals from private land e.g. homes, gardens.

Mendip District Council are not allowed to remove any dead animals during a foot and mouth outbreak. For further information please use the Defra Website.

Any dogs or cats found are taken to the local vets where they are checked for microchips. If a microchip is found the vets keep the dog or cat and informs the registered keeper.
