DEADLY snakes, ferocious tigers or a lone wolf could be living next door to you, the Antrim Guardian can exclusively reveal.
A special investigation by this newspaper has confirmed that there are 63 ‘dangerous’ wild animals licensed across the county.

Information obtained from the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs confirmed that the 63 ‘pets’ are owned by 11 licensees.
