Goats meat found on a bathroom floor
The carcasses of seven goats were found on a bathroom floor in St. Elizabeth on Tuesday.
The police believe the goats were stolen, adding that there has been a significant spike in the larceny of goats and pigs across the island over the past two weeks.
Members of the public are being urged to be careful when purchasing meats because in most instances the meats of those stolen animals are stored in unsanitary conditions.
A number of the animals stolen are either pregnant or being treated for various illnesses and is not fit for public consumption.
In the meantime, farmers are being urged to take the necessary measures to secure their livestock. Among the actions that are encouraged is the building of fences and removal of animals them from roadsides.
