Has any body looked into how much it is within your area to get a DWA, and would you consider applying for one?

Sorry. The States have something completely different. We have to check CITES regulations and state and local jurisdictions for the owning and keeping of "Exotics".

And here, lemurs and caiman and Siberian tigers all fall under the same "exotics" law.

Cute, huh?!

Let me give you a typical quote from one of the counties in one of the states:

California - Alameda In addition to the state ban on private possession of exotic animals as "pets," it is unlawful to temporarily possess exotic animals in neighborhoods within city limits.

Colorado - Aurora It is unlawful for any person to possess as a "pet" the following species of animals: poisonous snakes and poisonous reptiles; non-human primates; bears; raccoons, porcupines, skunks, badgers or other like species; foxes, wolves, coyotes or other species of canines other than dogs; crocodilians with a length greater than 1 foot; any animal that is not indigenous to the state and not classified as a household "pet."

Texas - Addison It is unlawful to keep inside the corporate limits of the town wild and vicious animals. Wild animals include but are not limited to venomous lizards, rattlesnakes, cobras, boas, crocodiles, ostriches, rheas, tigers, lions, wolves, coyotes, raccoons, bears, elephants, primates, deer, etc.

Texas - Alvin It shall be unlawful for any person to possess, keep, permit, suffer, cause or allow any wild or exotic animals upon or within any premises within the city. A "wild animal" includes any mammal, amphibian, reptile, or fowl that is of a species which is wild by nature, and of a species which, due to size, vicious nature or other characteristics is dangerous to human beings. Such animals include but not limited to big felines, wolves, non-human primates (average weight as an adult is greater than 20 pounds), and all forms of poisonous reptiles.

We buy an animal with paper work and apply for a permit. There are some stupid procedures like requesting your neighbors permission and you the can keep anything you wish.

The difference is that if we want to keep a four-foot bit bull no worries but to keep a semi venomous snake we have to get granny next doors permission. The chances are that granny does not like the music you listen to or your dress code so refuses her permission leaving you at her mercy.

Ive heard that in the UK a vet must come around and inspect your facility accompanied by a municipal 'official'. Each district has its own fee and thats it.
