What to Do With a Dead Wild Animal

Unfortunately many wild animals are killed on our roadways every year by cars.  Also, many wild animals die from natural or predatory causes.  Never handle a dead animal with out protective gear, like gloves or an inverted trash bag.

Dead animals on roadways:

Dead animals on the roadway can be a hazard.  If you see a dead animal please note the location of the animal and call non-emergency police dispatch at 720-898-6900.  A police dispatcher will advise the Animal Management Officer to pick up the carcass.

Dead animals in your yard:

If you have found a dead wild animal in your yard you can either dispose of it yourself or call the Animal Management Office at 720-898-6850 for pick up.
