Dangerous wild animals
You need a licence to keep a dangerous wild animal.
A member of the Licensing team and a vet will inspect the premises where the animal is to be kept to ensure it is suitable. They will also recommend appropriate conditions for the licence.
A list of licensable animals can be found via the Gov.uk website: Gov.uk - List of licensable wild animals
We also have standard conditions that are applied to all licences.
