Default Burying pets in garden illegal in UK?

Just read on another Forum that it is illegal in the UK to bury animals in the garden (after they've died of course). Is this true? If it is, I'm in trouble as I have my last 2 dogs buried in my garden.

No as far as I am aware its not illegal to bury animals in the garden, in UK its farm animals maybe they are talking about - farm animals cannot be buried - they must be taken away.

It is illegal here too (city health code) ... (but don't go digging in my back yard to check me please, I've lost several of my older cats since living here & this is where they belong). Here you either have to have animal control come pick animals up for disposal or have creation performed by your vet's office to take care of remains.

I know that it is,now,illegal to bury a dog in yr garden, in France,unless he weighs less than 40 kgs(90pds).If you want to have him,at home,you would need to have him cremated.
I know that it's a pretty recent law,like in the last 3 yrs.
We 've done it for all our pets, in Fr. and 2 of them were 60 and 65 kgs.

Even though I'm in the US the laws are probably pretty much the same.

The good news is that no one is likely to randomly come around and dig your garden up just to see if you have pets buried there! You'd have to be reported before anyone would know.

Even if you were reported it's only a misdemeanor; no prison time involved. Just an order to comply with proper disposal laws and a fine if you don't.

If random inspections were allowed and prison was mandatory, no doubt there aren't enough prison cells to hold all the heartbroken pet owners that broke that law at one time or another.

Hi, Just checked with my otherhalf (who knows something about everything) and he informs me that it is indeed illegal to bury a dog in the garden here in the uk - you need some sort of lisence. How odd, I didnt know that either.
