Get Rid of Roadkill


There’s no need to stare at unsightly roadkill especially during the rut, also known as ‘crazy-deer season.’

Call Comal County within 24 hours of a car collision with a deer, and Road Department Operations’ Kari Mallett will dispatch a one-man crew to pick up the animal.

She says the county picks up between three to nine dead animals per day along 800 miles of county roads.

Comal County also will help residents living outside city limits dispose of non-domesticated animals that have died on private property. To complete a waiver allowing employees to access the land, call Mallett at 830-608-2090 to set up an appointment or, provide an email address that can be used to send a waiver to print, sign, scan and send back.

Comal County will pick up any bulky trash items dumped in county right-of-ways, but not domesticated “pets.”

People who live within city limits should call their local city hall to check on individual policies.

If the dead animal is in the state-maintained right of way (I-35, SH 46, US 281 or an FM road), call the Texas Department of Transportation at (830) 609-0707.
