$30,000.00 Reward

Reward Offered on Hawaiian Monk Seal Killings.¬†Wildlife officials said two of the animals were bludgeoned to death while the third was shot. The death of a fourth seal is also being investigated as suspicious. The deaths are coming as the federal government steps up its efforts to protect the seals, leading to simmering resentment among some fishermen who fear new regulations will trample upon their right to fish. The killings are also happening as the misguided notion spreads that the animals aren’t native to Hawaii and don’t belong here.
