BAS calls for monkeys to be culled

BAS calls for monkeys to be culled
18 Apr

The Barbados Agricultural Society wants the monkey population on the island controlled.

Chief Executive Officer James Paul says the monkeys are a nuisance for farmers and a threat to the economic livelihood of Barbadians.

Mr Paul is suggesting that some monkeys are being introduced to urban areas as pets and are let loose as they get older.

He says the matter of culling is one the island cannot get away from given the numbers.

He also wants Barbados to look at other jurisdictions where controlled areas have been introduced.
