The island of Cayman Brac can be a dangerous place for native wildlife.

The social media page Brac Wildlife Rescue reports March 2018 was an especially deadly month.

Cats, it says, are to blame for the deaths of five booby birds and a white crowned dove.

Brac Wildlife Rescue documented three sister islands rock iguana that were struck and killed by vehicles. Two parrots were also hit by cars, one suffering a broken wing, the other didn’t survive.

In addition, the group said one whistling duckling was taken from its mother, it died too.
