State officials are investigating the suspicious death of a baby Hawaiian monk seal on the east side of Kaua‘i. The 5-month old female was found dead from blunt force trauma at a beach in Anahola. And as HPR’s Molly Solomon reports, authorities are now turning to the public for help.

Authorities are urging anyone with information on these monk seal deaths to call the confidential hotline: 1-800-853-1964 OR 1-855-DLNR-TIP.
