Tell us about a dead animal

Use this service to tell us about a dead animal that you find on the road or in a public space.

We can remove dead cats, dogs, foxes, badgers, and other similar sized animals.

Dead animals bigger than a badger should be reported online to Kent County Council (opens in a new window) or by calling them on 03000 418181.

Before you start

We cannot remove dead animals from private properties or private land which includes residents' gardens.
