i would throw out the snail even though it is dead.

we have problems with people flushing things releasing pests. i know its only a dead snail but the reason we have state laws limiting some of the fish, inverts, plants we keep is because people flush them or release them.

wrap it in a paper towel and take it to the outside garbage can.
