What Should I Do With A Dead Animal On My Property?
Animals die everyday. Some animals will quietly die in the wilderness, while other may come in contact with some sort of poison. But, what do you do when an animal ends up dead on your property?
If the animal is small, like a bird or squirrel, you can slide it into an empty trash bag and place the trash bag in your outdoor trash. If the animal is larger, it isn't as easy as sliding it into a trash bag. You shouldn't touch a large dead animal either, while it's not overtly dangerous, it is better to err on the side of caution. You'll need to call our professional dead wildlife removal services to come and help you in this situation.

If you find a dead animal on your property, you should never just ignore it. It is also important that you work with a professional dead wildlife removal specialist instead of removing the carcass yourself. Removing a dead animal from your property is not as straightforward as it seems.
Depending on the level of decomposition, the job can be messy. There are also contamination issues to consider, especially if the dead animal is inside your walls, attic, crawlspace, or other interior space.
When removing a dead animal, we will:
- Fully inspect the affected area
- Remove the carcass
