Noaa Reveals Death Of Two Young Monk Seals

HONOLULU, OAHU (Ben Caxton) — NOAA revealed Monday that they are investigating the deaths of two young monk seals along the north coast of Oahu. Autopsies show that both young seals were healthy at the time of their deaths. One, RK88, also known as Kuokala died earlier this year in a lay gill net and a necropsy determined the cause of death as drowning. The other, two-month-old RL44, or Nanea, was found dead on Oahu’s North Shore on September 24. NOAA says the circumstances surrounding her death indicated that she did not die of natural causes. NOAA’s Office of Law Enforcement is investigating. They’re asking anyone with information to call (800) 853-1964.
