1. About a dangerous wild animals licence

You will need a licence to keep some animals considered to be wild, dangerous or exotic.

See the full list of animals that require a licence from us.

As part of the licence process, your premises and animals will be inspected by a council appointed veterinary surgeon. This will be an additional fee to your application fee.
