I was on the City of Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation page, looking for the phone number for bulky item pickup (au revoir, dear old couch).

One of my options is “Dead Animal Collection.”

Uh, yes please.

Dead Animal Collection

The Bureau of Sanitation collects dead animals free of charge, except for horses and cows. (For horses and cows, please check your local yellow pages for a rendering service.) Please call 1-800-773-2489, from Monday through Saturday, between 7:30a.m. and 4:45p.m. For after hours and Sundays, please dial 3-1-1 on your home phone.

If there is really a job that involves cruising around all day picking up dead animals then I would like to apply.

ps-  Google image searching “dead animal collection” gets you a page full of Animal Collective promo shots.  Boo.
