Dear Ms Gerrard,

 

Thank you for your information request of 15 August 2018. Aberdeen City
Council (ACC) has completed the necessary search for the information
requested.

 

During the period 01 January 2013 to 01 January 2018:

 

1. How many Dangerous wild animals licences were issued?

4 Dangerous Wild Animal (DWA) Licences have been issued.

 

2. What species of animal were kept under the Dangerous Wild Animal Act
1976?

Beaded Lizards - Heloderma Horridum Exasperatum- 4

Western Diamond Back Rattlesnake (Crotalus Atrox) -     1

Monocled Cobra (Naja kaouthia)- 1

Scorpions (Buthidae)- 100

 

3. How many exotic creatures are being kept under the Dangerous Wild
Animals Act in North-East Scotland in total? (i.e how many licences have
been issued since 1976?)

Unable to respond on a North East of Scotland basis. Only 4 licences have
been issued within the jurisdiction of Aberdeen City Council. Neighbouring
authorities (Aberdeenshire and Moray) will need to be contacted directly
to obtain their data.

 

4. Are any approved for the city center/flats or are they all for
countryside properties with land?

All DWA licences within Aberdeen City are in an urban situation and are
not in countryside properties with land.

 

We hope this helps with your request.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Grant Webster

Information Compliance Officer
