Knife Wielding Seal Pup Threatens Beach Goers....


A Hawaiian monk seal pup named Manu‘iwa was seen holding an orange knife in her mouth last Sunday. Manu‘iwa, a female monk seal pup born in February, recently weaned from her mother on the Big Island. Staff from Ke Kai Ola, a hospital operated by The Marine Mammal Center at Kailua-Kona and officers from the DLNR Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement (DOCARE) have been monitoring the pup’s health and growth. At one point the seal dropped the knife under the rocks and it was later retrieved. Source
