"[Newt Scamander] was transferred to the Beast Division, where his prodigious knowledge of bizarre magical animals ensured his rapid promotion"

-- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (FB)

A division of the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, with responsibility for creatures defined as “beasts”

The Beast Division was established by Grogan Stump, Minister for Magic, in 1811 (FB)

It was headed by Newt Scamander after 1917 (FB)

The Division includes:

Centaurs were classified under Burdock Muldoon of the Wizard#s Council as "Beasts" and later by his successor Elfrida Clagg as "Beings". The centaurs then refused to attend a Council meeting in protest at the exclusion of merpeople from "Being" status, and eventually both centaurs and merpeople asked and were granted the right to manage their own affairs. (FB)



The Invisibility Task-force (DP1), in charge of hiding the Loch Ness monster, is likely to be a part of the Beast Division
