Hawaii County police investigate calf butchering in Honokaa


Hawaii island police opened an investigation into the alleged butchering of a calf last weekend by an intruder at a Honokaa paddock.

Police said it appears someone entered a livestock paddock in the Kapulena area sometime Saturday or Sunday and butchered a calf valued at more than $400.

The case has been classified as theft of livestock.

The property had been set aside by the county for lease to farmers and ranchers.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call Officer Duwayne Waipa at 775-7533.
