You will most likely find a dead animal on your property at some point. For example, it is not uncommon to find dead birds in your garden if you have cats. Regardless of the animal, carcases are unhygienic and bring an awful smell, so knowing what to do when you come across a dead animal is essential.

Remove the dead animal immediately

If a dead animal is not removed immediately from your property, its decomposing body will become a health hazard. Unless the body is in plain sight, you may not realise that you have a dead animal in your garden, until you begin to smell it. It will dispel foul odours and can cause flea infestations. This indicates that the body is in the initial stages of decomposition, and it may be disease-ridden.

So, if you find a dead animal on your property, it is imperative not to touch the carcass with your bare hands, always wear protective clothing.

Always ensure that no household pets can get hold of the dead animal. You do not want to incur a pricy vet bill if your beloved pet consumes any part of a decomposed animal. Unless you have seen the demise of that particular animal, you have no idea how long they have been sitting there and in what state of decomposition the carcass is in.

Get professional help

Dead animal removal from your property, no matter the age or size, is a job that is both unhygienic to do yourself but also upsetting, especially if it’s a pet.
