Black bag with really bad stench

Reported via mobile in the Dead animal category anonymously at 06:15, Friday 22 July 2022

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 3697057.

As you approach this bag from across the road, the stench hits you - something is dead inside of it, and I'm not opening it to find out what!! I've smelled dead animals before, this is definitely the same! This bag appeared overnight, if its left all day, the heat will make it worse, and other animals might rip out open!

  • I noticed an awful smell from my bedroom window being open and I can see someone has reported the black bag which is on the pavement across the road from my house and am guessing this is where it is coming from - I suspect it is a dead animal.

  • This bag has sat here for over 24 hours! The smell is disgusting and getting worse. It's a HEALTH HAZARD!! We're all breathing in decaying flesh smell - not to mention any bacteria being released into air!!
