Removal of dead animals

We provide a free service for the removal of dead animals from all accessible areas of the roadside which do not block the road. We do not remove dead animals from inaccessible locations such as; highways, rooftops, or waterways. If you need to report a dead animal in a road, please report on Worcestershire County Council's website.

Our dead pet policy is to take the pet to the vets and check for microchips, if they are chipped then the vet will then contact the owner.

You can report a dead animal anonymously or by logging it on our My Wyre Forest portal.

Avian Influenza

Avian influenza (bird flu) mainly affects birds. It can also affect humans and other mammals.

Bird flu is a notifiable animal disease. If you suspect any type of bird flu in poultry or captive birds you must report it, failure to do so is an offence.

Due to the threat of Avian Influenza, if you find dead wild waterfowl (swans, geese or ducks) or other dead wild birds, such as gulls or birds of prey, you should report them directly to Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) on their public enquiry helpline 03459 335577 please select option 7. You must be 18 or over to use this service to report dead wild birds.

More information can be found on GOV UK.
