Florida Government to Citizens: Kill Green Iguanas

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Committee announced on its website that Florida residents should kill any green iguanas on their property. These ridiculous creatures are native to the Caribbean and climate change has caused the previously small population in Florida to increase exponentially. The Commission reported the iguanas were destroying the ecosystem as well as infrastructure. When the iguanas dig, they can cause damage to the foundations of buildings, sidewalks, and among other infrastructure. Some 800,000 iguanas have been killed so far. If homeowners do not wish to kill the iguanas, they can call companies to trap and remove the iguanas instead.
