Poacher on the run

A poacher is on the run after lawmen encountered him with 703 sea eggs.

Members of the Police Marine Unit supported by members of the Barbados Coast Guard met the man around 1:15 pm yesterday, while at Bath, St. John.

However, the poacher escaped, leaving nine polythene bags containing the sea eggs and fishing implements, lawmen said.

A marine biologist identified the sea eggs as being young.

Police say they would continue to investigate the find and have promised increased vigilance against the illegal activity.

Anyone with knowledge of such activities should contact the police emergency number 211.

    Don’t they understand that this behavior puts the population of the animal in jeopardy. Eventually they will be gone completely.

    Of course they had to count every single one. Did they take them away as evidence?
