The National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) is offering a reward to anyone who is able to provide information leading to the arrest and charge of the men seen in videos last week killing a crocodile.
NEPA and the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) continue to investigate the incident as well as to explore avenues of finding the men responsible.
The public is implored to offer tips and other information which can help in locating the perpetrators.
Morjorn Wallock, Legal and Enforcement Division Director at NEPA, says, the actions of the men are a breach of the Wild Life Protection Act, and therefore should not go unpunished.
The American Crocodile is the only crocodilian species on the island and its global population currently listed as vulnerable by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
Under the Act, if persons are caught hunting, capturing or willfully molesting a crocodile, which is an endangered species, such persons will be arrested and charged.
Offenders could be fined a maximum of $100,000.00 or face one year imprisonment.
