Highways - Animals - Dead

Frequently Asked Questions for this Service

Question: What should I do if I find an injured animal?

Answer: There is no general emergency service for injured animals provided by the council; although dead or injured animals which are obstructing the highway will be moved.

The council recommends that anyone who does find an animal and is concerned should contact the RSPCA in the first instance. In an emergency and if they can't be contacted, you should approach a veterinary practice and ask their advice. Most island vets will be aware of appropriate people to contact and should be able to offer some advice or even help themselves.
