Pig Hunting on Resort Property at Mauna Kea

I know you think I’m kidding, but Mauna Kea put out this notice to owners, so as not to scare who…the owners, the pigs, or the hunter?

“Aloha,

Please be advised that our hunting contractor will be on property tonight December 17, 2010, and tomorrow night December 18, 2010. He will be on property between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. each night.”

Island life comes with some minor inconveniences…like pigs rooting up your yard, or as with my lunch with team members in North Kohala today, geckos crawling on your hair and back while dining al fresca at the Nambu Courtyard in Kapaau (very entertaining to me, as it wasn’t my hair or back), or…this one is priceless, pigs in your pool!

I have a house with a pool in a somewhat rural area, and have left the gate open accidentally to find a piglet standing on the top step of my pool…with a not so happy mama pig shrieking (if pigs shriek) nearby. I find it much easier to get a pig out of the pool than in.

No real value was given to this story, just found it amusing enough to share. We live and love this island for all its differences, and wouldn’t change it for the world. As with all things, there is balance and a pig in the pool is okay, but not a pig in the resort!

A hui hou!

When they finish with the pigs at Mauna Kea, perhaps the hunters would continue on to the the goats at Mauna Lani?
Lucky we live Hawaii!

That was a great blog Pam! I feel bad for the piglet in the pool. I would have loved to see that.

Hilarious Pam! Sounds like our property in Hawi! We found a baby pig a few months ago in our sheep herd and now she (Miss Tilly) is our pet!

Getting that notice concerned a few homeowners, (and pigs), I’m sure:-) There was a coqui frog hunter at Kauna’oa not too long ago. Vicious creatures that they are:-)
