HONOLULU (AP) — The last 50 wild donkeys on Hawaii's Big Island will be rounded up, marking the final step in a six-year effort to get them in adoptive homes.
When drought conditions forced the donkeys into residential areas in search of water, the herd became a problem.
The animals wandered into roadways, tore up golf courses and drank from swimming pools, said Inga Gibson, Hawaii state director for the Humane Society of the United States.
The group has spent about $200,000 to get more than 450 donkeys in homes, including 120 that were flown to California in 2011 and found homes through Eagle-Eye Sanctuary Foundation and Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue, Gibson said.
Donkeys are social animals, so they must be adopted in pairs or have another animal to keep them company at their new home, she said.
