Hawaii park offers free goats to end ecological damage


More than 400 goats were removed from Puuhonua o Honau- nau National Historical Park last month.


The National Park Service and state Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of Forestry Wildlife successfully re- moved 458 goats. The project was undertaken to remove goats from lands that were negatively impacting cultural and natural resources. Between July 8 and 21, the state received 185 applications for the lottery and issued 14 permits allowing for 20 to 50 goats each. The goats were free to the recipients, provided they had an approved trailer to load and haul them away. Starting Aug. 9, a team of wildlife specialists and fence builders


worked to install a temporary wing fence to help contain and corral the goats into a long chute where they could divide the goats for dis- tribution.


The next day, staff from both parks began a soft drive to move the goats to the south side of the park where the wing fence kept them contained over night. Early the next morning, at the crack of dawn, staff from the four parks joined together and after a safety briefing the diverse crew began to slowly move the goats into the chute. The first trailer arrived at 7:30 a.m., and the effort to load the goats began not too long after. Once all 458 goats were loaded, the park was reopened to the public. n
