Keizer wildlife control tip of the month: What to Do if You Find a Dead Dog Outside
It is extremely upsetting to find any dead animal on the road, much less a dog. Running over an animal and killing it is illegal in most states. Therefore, many drivers choose to leave the Keizer exterminator animal they have hit and drive away. But it is advisable that even if you accidentally hit an animal, do make some effort to call in authority and notify them about the location. And if you see a dead dog on the road or on the roadside, do not ignore it. Call in the local animal control or city or county services.
Even if you are an avid dog lover, you might not want to touch the dog and carry it out by your own hands before the Keizer animal trapping authority arrives because the dog might carry diseases. If it was a stray dog without a collar or tag, it has more chance of carrying diseases than any pet dog, as it has never been vaccinated. You never know, the dog may have died because of rabies. Either way, a dead animal might carry in its body hundreds of pathogens which might be bad for your health. So, it is a bad idea moving away the carcass by yourself even if it is a small puppy.
Sometimes, a dog might not die immediately on the spot of the accident. The accident leaves him injured and dying. At that time, the dogs become extremely violent and can attack anyone at close proximity. Therefore, even if you see a dying dog on the road or on the roadside and you do not have proper training regarding how to deal with violent dogs, you would better stay out of it. What you can do instead is call the nearest dog rescue team so that they can come up and do the needful.
Most Keizer wildlife removal services deal with dog problems but it is debatable if they remove dead dogs from the road as well. To be safe, you can call in the local animal control or the local sanitation team who will know what to do with the carcass. If the carcass is badly damaged and there is a bloody situation, then the sanitation team will be extremely helpful.
However, if such Keizer pest control occasion arises where you have to take care of the carcass yourself if you find it in your own property, do not go at it unprepared. You must take proper protections against the diseases and viruses that you will be coming in close contact with. Therefore, wear a pair of large gloves. Cover your mouth with gas mask and then carry out the carcass. If it is a big dog, you might need a little more help as the body becomes heavier after death.
If the dead dog has a collar or tag and if there is any contact number of the family that owned it, do call them up to let them know about the Keizer animal control tragedy and wait for them to take away the body. But if there is no such contact number, you may either cremate it or bury it.
