Carroll discusses Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) vs. cats. Carroll wonders how the government just stood by and allowed the cat situation to "get so far out of hand" and is concerned about what DLNR wants to do now.
Carroll's guest is Don Phillippi, who has lived on his boat at Keehi Boat Harbor for the past 28 years. In February, 2016, Phillippi was threatened with eviction from the harbor because he was feeding cats at the harbor. Since the eviction notice he states he has been forced to renew his permit every three months, instead of the usual one-year time period.
Now his boat
is subject to four inspections a year, and he must pay the fee four times a year instead of annually. This is just a method of harassment by the state. Phillippi says just recently his permit was extended for six months, but he is the only person at the harbor facing eviction. Phillippi has also participated in the trap, neuter, release program. The administrative rule proposed by Chairman Suzanne Case and the Department of Land and Natural Resources states, in 2019
cats on state property may be killed by any method the government may choose. Phillippi tells us in the past approximately 100 ducks at the harbor were poisoned by the state, and he is concerned that may be the fate of the cats in 2019. Carroll has told us guns may be another choice. So, which will it be? See Carroll's facebook post, "DLNR's UNCLEAN
HANDS" for more information regarding Mr. Phillippi's situation. Also listen to Carroll's radio shows for the past two weeks.
So many other disturbing and illegal things are happening at the harbor, so why is one person feeding cats being targeted?
Once again Carroll tells us any conservation efforts by the State of Hawaii are highly inadequate and tainted with corruption, draining the public's money into pet projects that do little good but make money for the participants.
