Dead animal removal

Report a dead animal

We are responsible for the removal of dead animals found only on public land. This includes wild animals such as badgers and foxes as well as domestic pets such as cats and dogs.

We are unable to remove dead animals from private property. This is the responsibility of the property owner.


Report dead animal


Out of hours service

If the animal is causing a hazard please call Transport for Buckinghamshire on 01296 486 630.


The responsibility for removing dead animals from motorways or the Marlow bypass lies with the Highways Agency:

What happens if it is a domestic pet?

When we remove a domestic animal such as a cat or dog, we will try to identify and inform the owner from a collar or microchip. We will store domestic animals in a freezer for a period of time while this process takes place in order to give the owner the opportunity to reclaim their pet.
