Iguana on grill goes viral on Facebook

Photos circulating on Facebook of an iguana being cooked on a barbeque grill has gone viral.

Sources at the Forestry Department told St. Lucia News Online that it is illegal to catch and slaughter iguanas.

“Iguanas are a part of our treasured natural protective wildlife habitat and persons can be fined up to $5,000 or imprisoned for one year if found guilty of this act, a source in the Department said.

Other conservationists have hit out against the act.

  3. For attempting to kill an individual you get bail for $5000. Tell me the iguana and human life seem to be on the same scale.

  4. People just have no sense of privacy or common sense since facebook came along. They feel the need to post everything they do on facebook, even illegal stuff. Facebook has helped authorities put plenty people in jail, some lost their jobs, or their spouse. It is a public forum, if you won't do it on the market steps in broad daylight, then you probably should not post it.

  5. I see nothing wrong with catching and eating it, times and things are hard. No jobs, nothing. They should lock up whom so ever wants to find the guy 5000. Do u know how difficult it is to feel hunger? Exactly.

    • What are saying? This tiny iguana is going to fill him up and make his stomach rock hard. He probably has the stomach of a doll. I just came from home and I saw a lot of ripe fruits on the ground.I even ate some I scooped up from the ground. This is probably the lamest excuse I have heard in a long time. What's next? The national bird?

  6. @watermark,"wow things so bad in the country that people have to resort to eating iguanas?" This is a dumb comment to make. Growing up I knew a group of guys that took pleasure in finding cats and eating them. These same guys would eat any living thing that they could lay their hands on and that was 30 years ago.

  9. Sad to say that i met a group of young guys when they were on their way to hunt. They said that they were out for meat to cook. Later I met them with two meats:

    Layzar
    manicou

    Boy they were excited with the days catch. As stunned as i wwas knowing that it is illegal, these young men looked hungry and yet happy to have food to take home to their kids.

  10. First to begin with we have foreign iguana in St. Lucia so if u see a man with one on his grill. One must prove that this one is not an endemic specie. Further more when the foreign iguanas are caught they putting them to sleep.

  11. He ate the iguana before it ate him lol. Wrong decision! Now u have to pay a $5000 fine. Now you could have used that money to buy u a legal meal. What a waste of money.

    Only after the last tree has been cut down.
    Only after the last river has been poisoned.
    Only after the last fish has been caught.
    Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.
