Donkey on Mamalahoa Highway Safely Returned to Herd!

On December 22, the donkey magic menehune made more magic by getting this dear donkey back where he belonged. Donkeys are lonely without their friends, this is true. So you made him happy. Thanks to all those who periodically reminded me to follow up and to the menehune who siezed an opportunity when it presented itself. This community can come together fast when it needs to.

Home for the Holidays

On the Beach, Long Beach, CA 1909
As the 200 or so remaining donkeys regroup in the Waikoloa region, so are the volunteers. We are beginning to look for adoptive homes on other Hawaiian Islands and to think more intensely about how we will create a controlled enviornment where we can manage the size of the herd through humane means. This is meant to keep donkeys, if possible, in our area, but not so they can continue to breed to their former herd size.

Remember, the donkeys were under pressure, drivers were under pressure, and residents felt pressured, too.   We don't want to get to that point again, ever, or all the work was for naught.

Donkeys and people are now, we hope, "home for the holidays".
