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.

Detroit Dead Animal Tip: Does the government remove dead animals for free?

Have you ever wondered whether the government will remove dead animals for free? This article shares all the details about the government’s role in removing dead animals and whether the services come at a fee.

Does the government remove dead animals?
Yes, the government removes dead animals. Government organizations are tasked with the removal of dead animals when the carcasses are on public properties.

The removal of roadkill on public property is usually up to the government. When the roadkill is on state roads, state organizations and agencies are in charge of the removal. City organizations and authorities are responsible for the removal of roadkill on the major public roads within cities.

State ministries of transportation are particularly in charge of removing dead animals from state roads. When one finds roadkill, they could search for the contact of the ministry of transportation in that area and reach out to them. A team is then sent to remove the carcass and clean up the area. State ministries of transportation have crews that are deployed to remove roadkill as soon as they are reported.

It is important the roadkill is reported swiftly. Accidents can occur from the presence of roadkill on and around roads. Drivers could try to swerve, and it will result in accidents. Multiple roadkill can also result from an initial one if it is not swiftly removed. The carcass of the initial roadkill could attract scavengers that could be hit by oncoming vehicles, resulting in multiple roadkill.

Apart from the state ministry of transportation, other organizations responsible for the removal and cleanup of roadkill include the animal control department of the area, the department of public protection, the animal welfare league, and the public safety department.

Apart from roadkill, the government is generally responsible for the removal of dead animals in public spaces. Critters infest a lot of public spaces and could die there. When they do, the public organization in charge of the maintenance of that space removes the carcass. The management of public spaces could also call specialized government agencies in charge of dead animal removal.

The government could also remove dead animals from private properties. The removal of carcasses from private property can be done by the local sanitation department. This is usually the case if the carcass is small. It could be wrapped and thrown out in the garbage bin if this is accepted by the local sanitation department.

Special arrangements could also be made with the local sanitation department to remove carcasses from private properties. The property owner would have to call the local sanitation department to confirm if this option is possible.

Does the government charge for dead animal removal?
Government agencies and organizations that remove dead animals from public spaces have this responsibility as part of their core duties. They do not charge for it. It is part of the duty of the organizations and agencies in keeping public spaces safe and secure.

For roadkill, the timely removal of the carcasses will prevent accidents and more roadkill. For dead critters in other public spaces, timely removal will prevent the spread of hazardous materials.

Yes, the government removes dead animals in public spaces for free. In private spaces, this might not be the case. The removal of dead animals from private properties could come with a fee.

If the local sanitation department accepts that carcasses can be disposed of in garbage bins, then the government could remove dead animals for free from private properties. It is noteworthy that local sanitation departments typically only accept small animals. For large carcasses, a fee could follow the dead animal removal.

Government organizations and agencies offer dead animal removal services because it is important in maintaining public safety. The service is offered in line with public health requirements. The agencies remove the dead animals and clean the area of the hazardous materials. Private organizations also offer dead animal removal services. These services come at a fee.

Government removes dead animals for free. The service is limited to public spaces and is offered to ensure public health and public safety. The government could also remove carcasses for free from private properties. Property owners may also have to pay a fee for dead animal removal services, by the government and private organizations.
