Wild donkeys to be taken from Hawaii to California
About 100 wild donkeys to be flown from Big Island to animal sanctuaries in California
By The Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) ' In an effort to control the Big Island's wild donkey population, about 100 of them are being taken to California.

KITV reports ( ) the Humane Society of the United States is planning to remove the donkeys on a chartered plane next month.

Hawaii Humane Society state director Inga Gibson says they'll go to animal sanctuaries.

Drought conditions led the donkeys from the highlands into a populated area in search of water. Donkeys were appearing near the highway and a school.

The Humane Society and a local veterinarian have been trapping and sterilizing the animals. At the end of the month, a clinic is to be set up at a ranch to castrate captured male donkeys.

Gibson says donors are to help with costs of the chartered flight.
