Cullers reminded of responsibilities

| 15/09/2019 | 0 Comments

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service and Department of Environment are issuing a reminder to registered iguana cullers and members of the public regarding the requirements and responsibilities of iguana cullers participating in the DoE’s ongoing Green Iguana Cull.

Firstly, all iguana cullers who are using firearms (air rifles) for the purposes of the cull are required to place signs prominently in the area where they will be discharging the firearm. These signs are to indicate that they are conducting a cull in that area. Cullers using air rifles must also wear a high-visibility vest identifying them as an iguana culler. Most importantly, any culler using an air rifle must have a valid firearms license issued by the RCIPS. Simply having a culling license does not automatically entitle you to use an air rifle.

All iguana cullers must secure permission from property owners before entering onto any private property to conduct a cull, whether or not they are using an air rifle.

The RCIPS and DoE are also encouraging members of the public to contact the RCIPS if they witness any culler who is in breach of these requirements.
