Help please re smell/deceased animal next door

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Any help/advice appreciated!

We've had a smell coming from the neighbouring property since Friday. The council/environmental health and police are all unable to help. 

A bag containing a dead animal (dog/cat) has been dumped next door, at a property that has been empty for nearly 4 year. 

As its not council land they are unable to help due to the rules they have to follow as its not council property. 

We've had to put up with the smell from this all weekend and haven't been able to open any windows, and its been sooo warm over the weekend :(

The bag is completely visible from the street, is filled with maggots and surrounded by flies and the smell in the area is horrendous. 

Apart from waiting around until the council try and trace the owner which could take a long time we are at a loss. 

Fed up :(

Thanks

Sarah

@Sarah Gordon unfortunately no idea.

Think I would be climbing into the property and shovelling the bag and contents into a sealed bag/container and placing it into a normal household bin for collection. 

@Malcolm Robinson - @Bill Crosby - any ideas?

Yeah sorted cheers, not through any help from environmental health mind you. Not heard from them since, ridiculous. Think someone's just gotten sick and moved it themselves after we were getting nowhere. 

At least its gone now

It may be gone but it's still left a very bad smell ... coming from environmental health - who didn't offer any help! Same on them!

      Police are investigating a Bedlington care home where inspectors say some elderly residents weren't kept safe.
      Medicines had allegedly gone missing at Baedling Manor Care Home, while the local authority was called in to monitor the home's safeguarding arrangements.
      The home's 49 residents "did not always experience safe care and treatment", inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) said.
      The CQC said it had launched an inspection after being contacted with concerns about "safeguarding people, staffing, recruitment, medicines, infection control, consent, complaints and the governance of the service".
      Downgrading the home, run by Alcyone Healthcare, from 'Good' to 'Requires Improvement', the report said: "People were not always safeguarded from the risk of harm. Incidents were not reported or recorded properly, and action was not always taken to address matters.
      "The home was placed into organisational safeguarding by the local authority and there were police investigations in progress."
