hook removal

A hooked monk seal has been found safe.

Marine life rescuers spotted the seal Wednesday morning swimming erratically off Kaena point and brought her in.

Experts say she had swallowed the hook.

They managed to remove it but she’s still in critical condition.

They had been looking for her since Saturday when a fisherman called to say his hook accidentally got caught in the seal’s cheek.
