Stampeding deer snarl traffic on Molokai highway
KAUNAKAKAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Molokai is not known for its long wait times on the road — but it is definitely known for having too many deer.
Pono Poepoe shared this video with us after he got stuck on Mauna Loa Highway last Friday, just outside of Kaunakakai.
The video shows a stampede of deer crossing the highway, completely snarling traffic.
These non-native deer have been very damaging to the island by eating up vegetation and causing erosion.
The Maui Axis Deer Task Force has been encouraging hunters to target females to help control the population.
