Applying for an exotic, dangerous or wild animal licence

Anyone who wishes to keep and house a dangerous wild animal must have a licence. Zoos, pet shops and circuses are exempt from this type of licence as these types of premises require separate licensing conditions (see zoo licensing). Coventry City Council advises applicants to discuss their need for a licence prior to completing an application with a member of the Animal Welfare team. 

The costs of a new exotic, dangerous or wild animal licence is £345.00 (This is an annual licence which expires a year from the date the licence is issued).
