Dead wild animal

Report a car accident with an animal

You must stop and report the accident to the police if you hit any:

  • dogs
  • horses
  • cattle
  • pigs
  • goats
  • sheep
  • donkeys and mules

Accidents involving other animals such as cats, badgers, foxes, rabbits and pheasants do not need to be reported as a road traffic collision.

You must do this as quickly as you can, whether the animal is killed or not.

You can report any wild dead animals you find on the road below.
