LegCo to vote on 10,000% rise in stray goat fine

A move to increase the fine for letting goats stray on to Crown land is to go before legislative councillors on 13 September.

A rise from 25 pence to £250 has been proposed, in the hope that a “more meaningful” deterrent will help protect vulnerable plants and trees.

The fines would also apply to sheep for the first time.

LegCo will also debate a proposal to include cats and dogs in November’s “animal census” on St Helena.
