Budget Consultation 2019/2020

Apply for a dangerous wild animals licence

Keeping wild animals

You must have a licence to keep dangerous wild animals.

Animals classed as ‘dangerous wild animals’ are identified in the accompanying schedule to the Dangerous Wild Animals Act 1976. Examples may include venomous snakes, venomous spiders and most primates.

Zoos, pet shops and circuses are exempt from the provisions of the Act as these premises have separate licensing conditions.

It costs £149.10 plus vet fees for a dangerous wild animals licence, which is renewed annually.

Email licensing@rossendalebc.gov.uk or ring 01706 217777 option 7 to apply for a licence or for further information
