We deal with the removal of dead animals and dead birds from land we own, including:
- public open spaces
Report dead animals
Use our eForm to report dead animals or dead birds.
Our responsibility for dead animals
We appreciate it can sometimes be difficult to determine ownership of a dead animal. However, we can not remove dead animal or birds from private land as the responsibility lies with the owner (of the land or the animal).
Dead animals in rivers
The Internal Drainage Board will deal with 'watercourses' which are not main rivers. However, they may try to contact the appropriate landowner to deal with removal in the first instance.
