Our family visited the park on April 1, 2011, at midday. In the parking lot, there was a mother hen with newly hatched baby chicks. Many of the families with children, including our own, were admiring the cute chicks when a blue 4 x 4 pick-up truck pulled in. The local people in the truck let their dog out to chase the mother hen. When she flew away, the dog attacked and killed all the baby chicks. Despite the cries of the parents and the screams of the kids, these people did nothing to restrain their dog. Instead, they laughed. One of them went through the parking lot waving several of the dead chicks by the leg. This was intentionally cruel and very upsetting to the small children that watched this.When we requested that they restrain their dog, the people became abusive and threatening to us, approaching our car in a disturbing way, until we were forced to leave to avoid a conflict. There was no official supervision in the paid parking lot. We tried to find someone in charge where you pay for parking. No one was there to help us. Beware of a bright blue 4 x 4 pick up truck with Maui license plate N-- --6.
