The Street Cleansing Service is responsible for the removal of dead animals (wild and domestic) from public areas and roads in Carmarthenshire.
Our responsibilities include the removal of certain dead animals from public areas.
This includes dead cats, dogs, badgers, foxes and larger animals, such as deer, which will be removed within 72 hours of being reported.
Smaller animals, such as squirrels and rabbits, would normally only be dealt with by scheduled street sweeping.
If you want to report a dead animal on a public area, please email, phone or write to our Street Scene team on telephone: 01267 234567, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or contact CarmarthenshireDirect with the following:
- location (e.g. an adjacent/nearby address) of the dead animal;
- brief details of the animal, such as type, colour, size; and
- the time at which you saw the animal.
You can now report a dead animal online by complete our Online Dead Animal Report Form.
