Here are some simple steps on how to safely dispose of a dead animal.
Do not touch the animal.
Use a long-handled shovel to pick up the dead animal and place it into a plastic bag.
Put on gloves before handling the plastic bag.
Tie a knot in the top of the bag.
Place the bag with the animal into a second bag.
Tie a secure knot on the top of the second bag.
Dispose of the bag in an outdoor trash container.
Remove the gloves and thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water.
