Shire-owned property and other roads

We remove deceased animals from urban and semi-rural areas. We do not have resources to remove deceased animals from rural areas. Contact us.

Keep your home snake-free

Snakes become more active in Spring and Summer as they leave their winter retreats in search of a mate and food.

You can take precautions to keep them away from your house by removing mice, long grass and items lying on the ground that may provide shelter for snakes.
