The Forestry Department is reminding hunters that the hunting season for mammals and reptiles officially ended on 31st January.
Senior Forestry Supervisor, Mr. Cornelius Richards, said yesterday, Monday 5th February, while the hunting season has ended for these animals, it will continue until the end of February for birds.
Mr. Richards said the public has a three-day grace period until 4th February to dispose of any meat or other parts of these mammals and reptiles, which they may still have in their possession.
He added that persons who do not adhere to the guidelines, and are caught with any meat from these wild-life species, can be charged or fined under the laws of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
