We are experts in dead animal removal, and take our job seriously. When removing dead animals, we do a COMPLETE job — not only do we remove the dead animal from your home or yard, we also decontaminate the area, deodorize it, and dispose of the animal or cremate it. If you aren't sure whether the stench in your house is due to a rotting carcass or another reason, we can sniff it out with our noses from our years of experience. We remove dead raccoons, dead opossums, dead skunks, dead squirrels, dead birds, even dead dogs and cats. We frequently remove dead rodents from inside walls, because poison kills rats and mice, who die in your house. We completely solve your dead animal problem by taking these steps:

  • Sniff out the dead animal if it is somewhere in your home
  • When necessary, for example if the animal is in a wall or under your house, cut a hole to remove the animal
  • Remove the dead animal, safely and completely (and seal the hole if needed)
  • Finish the job by decontaminating and deodorizing your home
  • Properly dispose of the dead animal through incineration or other means
  • Prevent it from happening again by finding out how they got in your house

Dead animal carcass removal is specialty work. Sometimes the job is simple, such as a dead opossum in the yard, in which case we can simply wear our gloves and respirator mask, bag the carcass, and take it away for incineration. Sometimes this is more complex, such as when the dead animal is under a home crawlspace, under a porch or deck or shed. Or if the animal is larger, such as a dog or a deer. The most complex cases are dead animals inside the house. The animal may have died inside the attic, or down in the walls, or the duct work, or any other part of the architecture. You may have a bad smell in your home, and you're not even sure what's causing it. We've removed not just dead animals, but rotting food, bad mold, etc. We specialize in locating the source of the smell, and we very commonly cut a hole in the ceiling or wall to remove the animal. We remove every bit of the carcass, mop up the juices, vacuum the maggots, spray it and wipe it down with disinfectant, cleaner, and we repair the hole we cut. In some cases we use ozone machines to neutralize odor.

Boston Dead Animal Tip: Who to Call to Pick Up Roadkill

From a deer that jumps across the road directly into headlights, to armadillos that might cause a slight bump in your trip, to stray animals that frequently are hit by motorists, there is always a good amount of roadkill that can be found on roads every day. Besides the obvious problems, such as causing accidents with drivers that are less than careful, to the smell of decomposition that can drift into nearby neighborhoods, there are many problems that can be caused when the roadkill simply is left. So who comes to get the roadkill? Who are you supposed to call when you see roadkill in the road that could cause an accident, or catch a whiff of something smelly in your yard?

This answer isn’t quite as obvious as it might seem at first, though, as it depends on many different factors, including what the animal is, as well as where you find the dead animal. These factors can change the answer between city, county, and state agencies.

If the animal is on the side of a state-maintained road, such as a highway or interstate in your state, you should immediately contact the Department of Transportation. The dispatcher will ask where the animal is, as well as how large it is, and will often send someone out immediately. If they are unusually busy, though, be aware that they might direct you to the appropriate department, often transferring you to the people that can take care of the roadkill right then, before it becomes a bigger problem.

This answer, though, is only the right one if the animal is in the middle of a driving line. Animals that are out of the way, or that are not an immediate threat to other travelers, will be directed to another department oftentimes. If the animal is on another route that might not be under the jurisdiction of the DoT, then its removal will often be prioritized according to the number of crews that are available. Also, if the animal is on a route that is maintained by another agency, then the customer service department will contact the appropriate organization to take care of it.

Within city limits, as well, there are many factors that go into whose jurisdiction roadkill is. Mostly, though, this kind of roadkill will be the responsibility of the city’s Animal Control department, often overseen by the city’s police department. If there is an immediate call to remove the animal from a traffic lane that the DoT might not be able to get to, as well, then Animal Control will also respond to roadkill that is found on state roads.

If you have roadkill on private property, though, this is a different case, usually handled by the person who owns the property. Generally, though, you will need to contact a private pickup service, the numbers for which can usually be found either in the phone book or, if you aren’t sure how to reach them, through your local vet’s office.

After pickup, these animals can be disposed of in various ways. One of the most popular is burying them, generally in a private city-owned landfill. They can also be bagged, or sent to a crematorium, occasionally, as well.
