About 200 Hawaiian donkeys to move to Calif.


There are about 500 donkeys on the big island. Their ancestors were brought there years ago to work in the coffee plantations.

Natives say the wild donkeys have become a nuisance and driving hazard, so the Humane Society has worked out a plan to have about 200 donkeys flown to refuge centers in Tehachapi and Sonoma next month.

But first, some of them must be castrated. Once they're healed and in a better frame of mind, it's off to their new California homes.
