Hawaii ARA hopes to save thousands of chickens
HONOMU, Hawaii (AP) _ A Big Island animal rights activist is hoping to save thousands of chickens from slaughter when Hawaiian Fresh Egg Farm near Waimea closes later this year.
Tony Marasia, who is a vegan, doesn't have the resources to buy all 8,000 hens currently left at the farm.
But he's hoping that people will be willing to step up and adopt a few. The 33-year-old thinks of the hens as friends or individuals, rather than pets or animals.
