From Wu Hsiao-chen's YouTube video[/caption] Taipei, Dec. 26 (CNA) A Taiwanese YouTuber raised ecological awareness — and many eyebrows — this week after releasing a video of him and his family using slingshots to shoot over 100 invasive green iguanas in central Changhua County.

In a video posted on Monday, Taichung-based YouTube personality Wu Hsiao-chen (吳小珍), his wife and two sons embark on a hunting trip through the farms fields and forests along Changhua's Erlin River.

Using only slingshots — which, as Wu notes, are not controlled items under Taiwanese law — the family shoot some 60-70 juvenile iguanas and 41 mature iguanas in the course of a day.

In the video, Wu reminds viewers who want to join the removal efforts to act humanely and to bury captured iguanas in small groups to avoid impacting the local environment.
