There is a dead animal in the street or yard. Will the city remove the animal?

The Public Works Department will remove a dead animal from the street only, not from residential property. Residents will have to call a private service or bag the animal and place in the trash for collection on their regular service day by Republic Services. The ONLY exception to the rule is a dead deer which Public Works will remove. 

The Public Works Department can be reached by calling (314) 872-2533, Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Please note: If the dead animal is on a state road (i.e., I-270, Olive Boulevard, Lindbergh Boulevard, Ladue Road west of I-270) the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) will pick up the dead animal. MoDOT can be reached by calling (314) 275-1500.
