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.

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

Watching a herd of deer run across vast plain fields - just like you see on TV - is exhilarating. However, nothing is exhilarating about having a nuisance deer in your yard. Even worse is if you wake up one morning, only to find a dead deer outside. Don’t think this is plausible? Sorry to burst your bubble, it is! As we continue to encroach into wild habitats, it’s only natural that our interaction with wild animals has been on the rise. Consequently, road construction, building projects, and other forms of habitat destruction have pushed deer into residential areas. It’s only logical that our encounter with deer - both dead and alive - increases. When you spot a dead deer, what you’re supposed to do is dependent on several factors. In this article, we explore the subtleties regarding dead deer removal.

Why Deer Die Outside
There are two main reasons deer die outside:

Because of our increased encounter with deer, the incidents of vehicle collisions with deer have been on the rise. If the deer is badly hit, it may die on the spot. If not, it may incur serious injury, and will eventually die.

Health Issues
Deer are susceptible to several diseases that may claim their lives. Most notably is chronic wasting disease (CWD). Symptoms of CWD include weight loss, stumbling, and listlessness, which leads to certain death. Deer may also die from health complications due to old age.

What to Do If You See a Dead Deer on a Public Property
If you find a dead deer on public property, it is not your responsibility to remove it. However, if the dead deer is in the middle of the road, you can pull it to the side of the road to prevent accidents. Ensure that you wear gloves and avoid direct contact with the deer as it may pose serious health risks to you. Thereafter, call your local animal services to inform them of the incident. Your local wildlife district will send in experts that will take care of the carcass. They’ll most likely come with a large vehicle to pick up the carcass.

What to Do If You See a Dead Deer on Your Private Property
If you find a dead deer in your yard, then you need to deal with it. If you don’t, you’ll have to put up with the terrible odor for a long time as it may take up to four months for the carcass to decay completely (deer are pretty large animals!).

You have three main options:

Contact Your Local Animal Service
If you’re lucky, your local animal service might be able to assist you to remove the dead deer from your property. But there’s only one way to find out: you have to ask them!

Involve a Professional Wildlife Removal Company
Most private wildlife removal companies also provide dead animal removal services. However, these companies tend to charge for their services. But trust me, the amount they charge doesn’t even come close to the putrid smell you’ll have to deal with.

DIY Methods
If you’d like to get rid of the carcass yourself, there are many options you can try out:

Landfill disposal
Contact your local landfill to find out if they can accept a deer carcass. If they can, you can ask for permission to dispose of the dead deer there.

This method is ideal in only specific scenarios. But before you bury any dead animal, make sure your follow your local guidelines in regards to the burial of carcasses. This is because buried animals may transfer pathogens to underground water sources, which may eventually harm humans.

You can also opt to cremate the dead deer. Because incineration is carried out at very high temperatures, all pathogens will be destroyed.

Wrap Up
Whatever approach you decide to take, ensure that you do not make direct contact with a dead deer because of the health risks it poses. Some of the diseases a deer carcass may spread include babesiosis, toxoplasmosis, ehrlichiosis, Lyme disease, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Because of the large size of deer, getting a professional involved is usually the best bet!
