The Executive Council of the Public Entity Saba would like to inform the public of the following:

Following complaints about goats roaming in inhabited areas, the Public Entity Saba would like to remind the public that based on Article 2 of the 2004 Island Ordinance on identification and registration of livestock and pets, livestock owners are obliged to keep their livestock fenced in. Based on article 7 of this same ordinance, roaming livestock, tagged or not, will be captured or culled if they reasonably cannot be caught.

If captured or culled livestock is tagged and the owner can be identified, the owner will be notified about the capture or culling of their livestock. If livestock is not tagged, potential owners will not be notified.

Captured animals can be claimed within 5 days after capturing. The costs related to the capturing and care of the animal(s) will be borne by the owner.
