Yes, acid will decompose a dead animal in a roof vent pipe. Lye or refined lye caustic soda will dissolve organic materials without hurting the pipes. But the best way to remove the obstruction would be the hook end of a coat hanger, the retriever head of a sewer snake, or the treble hook of a strong cord.

What removes rust stains from in ground fiberglass pool?

Oxalic acid. Place it directly on top of the stain. This can be done with a section of PVC pipe. Put the pipe on top of the stain and pour the oxalic acid down the pipe and let it sit there for a few hours. You will have to find it at a chemical supply source in your area as pool stores do not carry it. I had a large commercial pool with a fibreglass liner that had thousands of rust stains caused by shot blasting the deck and doing the pipe thing was impractical so I shut off the equipment for 24 hours and broadcast the oxalic acid over the stained areas.
