A rabbit was knocked down and killed on the pavement in front of my place. How can I dispose of it?

This afternoon a rabbit was discovered in front of my place; its neck seems to be broken by passing cars. Shall I wait until tomorrow when garbage collector pick it up (obviously I can wrap a black plastic bag over its body) or it shall be disposed of at a specific location in my neighborhood?

Any turkey vultures, bald eagles or even magpies around? If so, just leave it (somewhere safe) and watch the wildlife show.

You don’t say what city you are in but in Toronto you can call 311 and they will have some come by and pick it up.

My friend is a manager for 311 in Vancouver. Employees are trained to ask people if the animal is on city property, and if so the city will come deal with it. And if the caller says "but it's on my private property", they are supposed to say, "I understand, but IF it were ON city property, we could help." "But it's not". "Yes, but just saying, IF the animal somehow made its way ONTO city property, we could come and deal with it."
Many people eventually clue in to this "small thing you need to do and we'll come and help you" prompting, but funnily many never get it.

I found a dead possum in my backyard 2 weeks ago, on my patio (interlocked stones), I tried to call the city (Vaughan Ontario) and I wish they would be helpful as you describe!!!! They just don't answer the phone.

At the end, the possum went to the garbage. Sorry if this was wrong, but it looked like a dog (or coyote) attacked him, it was urgent to get it out of the backyard, the blood and guts may attract the bigger animal to my house.

It has already become part of green pin organic waste....

Just bag it separately and then put it in you regular garbage bag for pickup.
