Dear Barrow in Furness Borough Council,

I would like information on licenses to keep wild, dangerous or exotic animals in the borough, issued by the Council under the 1976 Dangerous Wild Animals Act.

I would like to know:

- How many applications have been made for licenses in the past five years?
- How many licenses are currently issued?

Yours faithfully,
