Two Big Island Men Charged in Slaughter of Calf

Police have charged two Paʻauilo men in connection with the theft of a calf over the weekend in the Hāmākua District.

On Sunday (June 30) at about 11:30 a.m., police were contacted by a 54- year-old Honokaʻa resident, who reported that while checking his pasture land on private property, he discovered two individuals on the property and in possession of a firearm, along with a portion of a calf carcass that had recently been slaughtered.

The remaining carcass was recovered by police and was identified by its owner.
