We are responsible for removing dead animals (wild and domestic) from public areas and roads in Carmarthenshire. 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.

We need the following details:

  • location (e.g. an adjacent/nearby address) of the dead animal;
  • brief details description of the animal, such as type, colour, size;
  • the time at which you saw the animal.

If you find an alive, but injured animal on a highway, please telephone the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999. You can also tell us if you see a stray or lost dog.
