City asks people to move animal remains to the curb
BATON ROUGE - City officials asked people with dead animals on their property to move carcasses to the roadside right-of-way.
Crews will remove the carcasses of dead animals, the city of Baton Rouge said in a news release Thursday. It was not immediately clear when removal will start. Thought, the city previously said household debris contractors will begin collecting debris Monday, August 22.
Dead animal remains should be reported to the city after being moved curbside. Report carcasses for collection by calling 888.721.4372 for pick-up. Contractors can assist those who can't physically move the carcass.
The public right of way is the area of residential property that extends from the street to the sidewalk, ditch, utility pole or easement.
