The unfortunate reality of nuisance critters is that they don’t stop affecting humans – even in death, they can be a hazard.
The Dangers of Dead Animals
A dead animal near your property does not only produce a terrible odor; it also encourages scavengers and parasites, such as the development of maggots. Animal carcasses can carry disgusting disease transmissible to humans and pets that get too close and can pose a serious threat to soil and groundwater. Decaying carcasses seep into the ground and contaminate the soil with diseases such as baylisascaris, infection, caused by a common roundworm found in raccoons.
Family pets are drawn to the disgusting odor of a dead animal and might even digest some of the decaying matter. This can lead to serious illness in dogs and cats, and possibly death if they contract a disease the dead animal was carrying. Bodies of dead animals that have been improperly disposed of serve as meals for worms, flies, vultures, and crows – all nuisance critters you don’t want anywhere near your home.
