The current Fort Lauderdale City Ordinance indicates that all firing of airguns within city limits is banned.  The Florida Wildlife Commission (FWC) has indicated that all persons should kill green iguanas on their personal property if possible, as the green iguana is an invasive species, spreading diseases and destroying land and personal property.  Some animal rights organizations, have endorsed killing this invasive species, in the most humane way possible, to prevent a tortuous death of the animal.  The most effective means, according to some experts (including notable registered nuisance wildlife trappers) includes shooting the green iguana in the head with a firearm, air gun, or pellet gun, to avoid unnecessary suffering that comes from other means, such as whipping to stun or to kill, freezing, trapping and starving, etc.  This petition requests that an exception be added to the current city ordinance, allowing for the discharge of airguns only in the pursuit of humane extermination of this particular invasive species.
