Anyone who wishes to keep and house a dangerous wild animal will need a licence from us under the Dangerous Wild Animals Act 1976 (1976 Act). The number of animals and the type you plan to keep must be on the licence along with any conditions.
We can ask a Council officer, veterinary surgeon or practitioner to inspect licensed premises.
A licence will be issued for one year.
The licence runs from 1 January to 31 December.
