I regret to inform you that Hawaii's feral chicken population has crossed the Honolulu threshold and is making major tactical inroads into the city center
· Nov 3, 2022 · NottheBee.com

Coalition forces in Hawaii have been struggling for years to contain the aggressive feral chicken population present on the island:

A major counteroffensive launched earlier this year, including a multi-pronged effort to sterilize the wild fowl population and/or trap them in cages, was met with devastating failure as the chickens rapidly recouped territory they had previously lost:

Now, even the fabled fortress city of Honolulu is falling to the ferocious hordes:

There's a barnyard invasion coming into Honolulu's urban core, as Hawaii's colorful jungle fowl increase their unprecedented migration into downtown areas. Long a staple of country life on the island's rural fringes, feral chickens are moving uptown. ...

An increase in numbers is causing some city residents to consider the intruders as a kind of conquering army. Honolulu has a small pilot program that is aimed at trying to reduce the number of feral chickens, but a state initiative to take stronger action failed in the last legislative session, and some people, exasperated by the scope of the problem, are calling for more militant action.

Solutions involving nets, pellet guns, birth control and drug-laden bread crumbs are all being considered.

Honolulu's residents right now:

Maybe the city can make a petition to Congress and get some of that Ukraine cash rerouted to the island!
