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.

Austin Dead Animal Tip: What to do if I find a dead deer outside?

As humans continue to destroy the natural habitat of many wild animals by expanding territory, these creatures are forced to live near or with us. As a result, it common to have encounters with animals on a daily basis. Out of these meetings, one appalling one is the sight of a dead deer in your backyard or on private property.

I found a dead deer outside, what to do now?
Removing a dead deer from your property is not the same as discarding other animal carcasses. Deer are generally large animals and can weight quite a lot. Getting rid of their body is not an easy job, as sometimes 2 – 4 men are required to lift the dead animal up, and at times special equipment is also needed. Trying to move the hefty deer can hurt or injure you. Also, we recommend that you do not come in direct contact with dead animals as they may carry harmful parasites and viruses, which are transferable even after the animal has passed away.

What caused the deer to die?
Collision with a vehicle – after hunting, this is the second contributor towards deer mortality. Statistically speaking. Unfortunately, seventeen percent (17%) deer die on average due to getting hit by a truck or car. Another Collectors – as cruel as it may sound but some people do hunt deer and remove its head off to collect its anthers, which they see as collectible trophies. Natural Death – animals die of infection, out of starvation, wounds from a fight, or a natural death due to age or disease. Above are a few reasons why the animal might have died or ended up in the condition of your property. W

hat problems will the dead deer cause?
Dead animals give off a strong foul smell as they rot, this attracts other dangerous predators and flies. Also, bacteria and parasites grow very rapidly in their lifeless bodies which are a significant threat to humans and significantly affect their health.

Safe removal of the dead animal from your property
Your best bet is to call a private wildlife removal service to do the job for you. They might charge a fee to do the job, and that is understandable. Trying to get rid of the animal by yourself can hurt you in the process, and specific rules need to be followed if you wish to bury the animal by yourself. The animal must not be buried near water well, as it may contaminate the water source. Once a dead deer is found, call in a professional so that they safely deal with the issue.
