With a growing number of stray animals on the nation’s streets and in communities, the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force is urging citizens to ensure that their farm animals or pets are kept in a safe location.

According to section 26 of the Animal Act of Saint Lucia 2008, the police have the authority to seize any animal found wandering on the highway or public place.

The Act goes on to authorize the police to shoot or immobilize any animal which cannot be seized or which poses an immediate threat to public safety.

The owner of an animal who allows it to stray is liable on summary conviction to a fine of EC$5000.00 or imprisonment of two (2) years or both.

Failure by owners to ensure that their animals are kept tied or enclosed in a safe location shall cause the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force to do all in its power to curb on the incidents of stray animals.

    much appreciated.
