Animal fouling and dead animals
Reporting animal fouling
Reporting dead animals
You can report a dead animal in a public area or street and we will remove it.
We can remove dead animals from the gardens of residential properties where:
- there is a back or side gate
- you have bagged up the animal and placed it outside the front of your property.
We aim to remove any reported dead animals within 24 hours (excluding weekends and bank holidays).
Please note we are unable to remove dead animals from railway tracks. This must be reported to Network Rail.
We take a zero-tolerance approach to dog fouling on our streets and in our parks and open spaces. Help create a Cleaner Lewisham by ensuring you clean up after your dog.
When walking your dog, make sure you have bags or a poop scoop to clean up any mess. Every time your dog fouls, bag it and bin it.
