Residents who believe they may have a protected species in their garden, such as slow worms or frogs, need take no action as most animals in the UK are harmless.
Newport City Council does not provide a service to deal with Snakes, Toads or Frogs.
If you wish to report cruelty, injury or distress to wild animals, please contact the RSPCA (opens new web site).
