Tonight on Hawai‘i Island, there is a presentation from 6 to 8 p.m. at the P?hoa Community Center discussing an epidemic of eye disease in pets in the Puna area. Some believe there is a potential connection to the Little Fire Ant, though that relationship remains speculative for now. From the non-profit Good Shepherd Foundation, Director Syd Singer spoke with HPR ATC Host Dave Lawrence about it.
