Report dead foxes in Bristol

If you see or find a dead fox (with no ear-tags or collar) in the northwest part of Bristol (Coombe Dingle, Henleaze, Sea Mills, Sneyd Park, Stoke Bishop, Westbury-on-Trym and Westbury Park) please phone us on the number provided below. These animals lived or have entered our study site, so we are interested in them.

Unfortunately, we cannot collect dead (with no ear-tags or collar) foxes in other parts of Bristol. If you live in other parts of Bristol and want to report a dead animal, please contact the Customer Service Centre of the Bristol City Council, they will be able to help.

If you see or find a tagged (with plastic ear-tags) or collared dead fox, from anywhere in or outside Bristol, please phone us on the number provided below.
