Finding a Dead Animal in a Public Place in Japan

This is not the happiest of topics, but it came up recently on the Angels with Fur website, so I thought I would mention it here for future reference.

What should you do if you happen upon a dead animal in a public place in Japan?

I don’t profess to be an expert on this subject, but my best guess would be:

(1) If the animal looks like someone’s pet, try to locate the owner.

(2) If you can’t find the owner, contact the section in your city hall that deals with garbage.

The rules about how to deal with dead animals differ according to local bylaws, but the garbage section of your city (town, village) hall is probably the best place to start.

Here’s hoping you never have to use this information…
