If you find a dead animal on the highway, then please use our online reporting facility.

Request the removal of a dead animal

Please provide us with as much detail as you can about the animal and its location. Arrangements will then be made for the animal to be collected. Where practical, dependent on the location and condition of the body, it will be taken to Bolton Destitute Animal Shelter where it will be scanned for a microchip. Where a chip is found arrangements will then be made to notify the animal’s registered owner.

Our Service Standards

We aim to remove the dead animal (rats, cats ,dogs or any wild animal larger than a cat) within 1 full working day.
