Scottish backlash for ex-T&T footballer over iguana photo

A former Trinidad and Tobago footballer is being investigated by an animal welfare charity in Scotland over claims he killed and ate an iguana.  

According to an article in the Daily Mail, ex-Hamilton Academical and Trinidad & Tobago striker Richard Roy appeared in a photograph holding a dead lizard by the tail above a kitchen sink. 

The photo was posted on his wife Cheryl's Facebook page and is believed to have been taken at a house in Dundee. 

The post sparked a furious backlash after she said that her husband would be eating it later. 

Cheryl hit back: 'People need to mind their own damn business. Far too many people having a lot to say about other people's lives.

'If you don't like how I live my life, remove yourself, please.'

One user told the Daily Record that Cheryl had removed all of the critical comments alongside her post. Roy, 31, signed for Hamilton on a four-month contract in August 2016. 

The Daily Mail reports that the post sparked a furious backlash after she said that her husband would be eating it later. 

The Scottish SPCA has confirmed they have been made aware of the photograph and is now investigating.

Roy has got six caps for Trinidad & Tobago.

Here in Trinidad and Tobago, the iguana is a game animal and a licence is needed to hunt it.
