The Dangerous Wild Animals Act 1976 and a schedule included with the Act contains a list of the various animals classed as "dangerous wild animals" e.g. reptiles and squirrel monkeys.

In addition to powers of inspection the Act also gives us powers to seize any animal being kept on premises which are unlicensed.

Zoos, pet shops and circuses are exempt from the provisions of the Act as these premises are subject to separate licensing requirements.

How do I apply?

Please contact the licensing team who will be happy to assist you with your application process.

How much does it cost?

1 year - £84

The application will not be accepted without the correct fee. The fee is non-refundable.
