Scarborough Man Granted Licence to Keep Dangerous Wild Animals
A Scarborough man has been granted a dangerous wild animal licence by Scarborough Borough Council, allowing him to keep exotic animals at his home.According to the BBC Jordan Woodhead, who already has a python and a snapping turtle in his collection of reptiles, has now been awarded a licence to allow him to add an American alligator, a Siamese crocodile and a spectacled caiman to his collection.
Mr Woodhead, 21, who lives on the outskirts of Scarborough, has worked with the RSPCA and takes in reptiles that have been injured or mistreated.
"Everyone has their own fascination with things and mine's crocodiles. You need a secure environment and as long as you meet the rest of the husbandry requirements you can keep them."To keep animals scheduled under the Dangerous Wild Animals Act (1976), a licence is required from the local authority to ensure that they are held securely. The welfare of the animals is also considered as part of the licensing process.
