While the responsibility of wildlife animals rest with the United States Forest Service or California Department of Fish and Game, they do not pick up wild animal carcasses. At this time there is no public agency in Trinity County that removes animals struck by vehicles. 


If an animal is struck by a vehicle and obstructing a County Roadway, the D.O.T. road crews may move the animal to the side of road, but will not remove the carcass from the site.


If the animal dies on private property, it is the owner’s responsibility to dispose of the carcass; State Highways are handled by Caltrans. In the case of a domestic animal, please call the Trinity County Animal Shelter (530-623-1370); they will attempt to locate the owner but they do not pick up the animal – that is the owner’s responsibility.
