Drought conditions on Moloka‘i leading to animal starvation

KAUNAKAKAI, MOLOKA‘I – Surveys and investigations by the Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW) staff suggest that recent instances of deer dying on Moloka‘i are due to severe drought conditions. DOFAW began receiving reports earlier this month of deer being found both on roadways and on private lands in West Moloka‘i.
