Farm Bureau officer: “Dial it down, dial it down, get it down, get it down, get it down.”

The Bureau of Agriculture teamed up to catch all the green iguanas on the trees, and then went to the Daliao Club to catch the grass.
Staff of the Agricultural Bureau: “Come on, catch it, didn’t you catch it? Okay, come up!”
In one night alone, 74 green iguanas were caught in Daliao District, an astonishing number. Before the Agriculture Bureau dispatched, people reported that a super-large green iguana was found on a tree in a park near Daliao Kindergarten.
Local resident: “You chase it away, if you are not there, it will come back to eat sweet potato leaves.”
Local resident: “(Do you think this is a lot if you caught 74 in one night?) I think it’s a little outrageous.”
The local residents are deeply disturbed. Last year alone, Kaohsiung caught 5,025 green iguanas. Some people joked that Kaohsiung has become a kingdom of dinosaurs?
Lin Fangzhi, head of Shangliao: “I can run. Sometimes I can’t find it at this spot. Then I hope that they will expand the search area. That is to say, if they haven’t found this spot, they may look for more nearby.”
Liang Mingxian, chief secretary of the Kaohsiung City Bureau of Agriculture: “In fact, green iguanas do not actively attack people. As long as someone approaches, the green iguana will quickly run away. We remind the public that if they see a green iguana, they can call 1999 to inform us.”
▲The green iguana is an alien species that will affect the native ecology of Taiwan.
The green iguana is an alien species, which will affect Taiwan’s native ecology. Its digging habits will also damage river embankments, bridges and other facilities. In serious cases, it will cause short circuits in power lines, erosion of embankments, and eating crops, causing economic losses. Private sales and breeding will be fined. 60,000 to 300,000, the Bureau of Agriculture reminded that only the cooperation of the whole people can prevent the green iguanas from continuing to wreak havoc.
