UK FOI survey reveals snakes, jaguar and 2000 ostriches

Summer Blog (well it's still the silly season downunder)

Next time you travel to the UK, beware.

The Big Cats in Britain Research Group sought under FOI information from over 400 local authorities about details of licensed exotic animals.

The responses revealed there are 2,000 licensed ostriches, 500 monkeys, 250 poisonous snakes and 150 big cats including six lions, some leopards and one jaguar. Somewhere out there you might also find a grey wolf, 12 crocodiles, 20 venomous snakes, as well as various monkeys and bears.

Keep in mind these are the licensed animals - no one knows what are in the unlicensed category.
