Pair arrested for eating iguana on Facebook !
Two people have been arrested for eating an endangered species of iguana in the Bahamas after posting pictures of the grill on Facebook.
Vanessa Starr Palm, 23, of Illinois and Alexander Daniel Rust, 24, of Indiana, were arrested last Monday after pictures of the two having an iguana feast in the islands were posted on the social networking website.
According to police the pictures showed them "catching an iguana, parts of an iguana on a grill, two men eating the iguana pieces, and a man and a woman cleaning what appears to be undersized conch."
The two were arrested on the Fisheries Regulations and the Wild Animal Protection Act.
The photos ended up in the hands of Bahamian authorities, who tracked down the suspects and arrested them, the article said.
The iguanas are protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora.
The peckish pair could also fall foul of American federal law that links with the Bahamas.
