Police: Tethering of animals at National Public Library must cease

The Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force (RSVGPF) has issued a warning to members of the public not to tether animals on the property of the National Public Library in Richmond Hill.

In a notice, dated October 3, the Police Force has called for the practice to be ceased with immediate effect.

The Force advises that failure to comply with this order may result in the animals being dealt with in accordance with the Stock Trespass Act, Chapter 70 of the Revised Edition of the Laws of St. Vincent and the Grenadines 2009.

Under this Act, the Force has the authority to destroy animals that are causing injury to property.

The Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines solicits the co-operation of the public in this matter.

Police issued a similar notice back in August 2021 and again in April 2022, warning the public not to tether animals at the decommissioned E.T Joshua airport and its surrounding areas.
