Visitor on Costco
My husband and I have been vacationing on Kaua‘i for over seven years and still are in awe at the beauty and tranquility. However, we were very disappointed when Wal-Mart was allowed to locate on the island and understand that Costco has petitioned to build a store. We first visited Maui over 30 years ago which now has become too commercialized with too much traffic. I would hate to see Kaua‘i end up with the same outcome as Maui.
When I first visited Kaua‘i I thought seeing hens and roosters at Koke‘e was quaint.
Now, 18 years later, hens and roosters are an annoyance and menace all over the island of Kaua‘i. They and their droppings are everywhere – the boardwalks in Koloa, the sidewalks of Lihu‘e, Kapa‘a, Hanalei and on every-one’s property whether property owners want them or not. Cackling and crowing starting as early as 11:30 p.m. and continuing throughout the night isn’t conducive to visitor’s peaceful sleep. Constant exposure of residents and visitors to chicken droppings is not healthy.
Kaua‘i needs a program to reduce chicken numbers. Aren’t there residents who would like to have them for egg and poultry production? Once trapped the birds could be turned over to these would-be-farmers or 4H children farmers.
A program should be instituted soon before bird flu comes to Kaua‘i. Once the flu hits, Kaua‘i will really have an overwhelming problem.
