A sick and injured monk seal that was spotted on the sand in Kalaupapa, Molokai has been captured.

State and federal authorities had been looking for it after it was in need of some help.  It was captured Friday and flown to the Waikiki Aquarium for treatment.

The search continues for a monk seal which has a hook in its mouth.  The female seal was last seen in the Olowalu area after a shoreline fisherman accidentally hooked it.
