A Green Bay Hill resident was charged in relation to the illegal slaughter site that was discovered in Perry Bay last week.
Twenty-one-year-old Abba Gordon is facing a charge of Unlawful Killing of five Goats.
Gordon was arrested last Thursday when officers reportedly caught him killing the animals at the site located within bushes.
During their investigations, police unearthed over 100 heads of dead and decomposing sheep and goats in the area.
President of the National Livestock Association, Emanuel Peters said farmers have been hearing about the existence of these sites for some time.
He said farmers livelihoods are threatened by praedial larceny and cautioned businesses against buying meat from unauthorized sellers.
