SEVILLE - The Andalusian Regional Council will have in force in two weeks a pioneer decree that aims to place greater controls on ownership of pets such as snakes and lions that are deemed to be potentially harmful to people and the environment.

Owners of such pets have six months to register their animals with the authorities or face stiff fines of up to EUR 115,000.

The new law requires owners of dangerous pets to get insurance and pass a psychological test.
