Dead animals

Dead animals on the public highway should be reported to Hertfordshire County Council.

Stevenage Borough Council is responsible for removing dead animals found on land maintained by us. If you find a dead animal on council maintained land you can reported it to us online. We aim to remove dead animals within 48 hours. ( Using the online reporting system will generate a web reference number, this is not a reporting reference number.)

Recovered dogs and cats are scanned to see if they have been microchipped. If they are we will make every effort to contact the owners. These are kept in a cold store facility for one month to allow owners to claim them.

We do not collect dead animals from private land.
