Well Kauai Prosecuting Attorney Justin Kollar, earn your pay. Prosecute to the full extent of the law and NO PLEA DEALS! We’ll be watching, elections are just around the corner…….
The monk seals are friendly. Unless you attack them. The seals never did know there are other life forms on earth.
Ah yes, “respect”….there is that word again. The tourists are not respecting us!!! Ah, maybe they don’t know that “touching” a seal could send you to jail for 5 years and a $50K fine.
Bet hey, on Kauai, you can put 10 dogs in a cage, in the back of your rusty Tacoma, designed for 5 dogs, and no one blinks an eye. Up until last month, you could tie a dog to a tree 24/7 without anyone saying “Why do you even have a dog”. Dog fighting?……is that ever enforced on this island?
Seals are an otherworldly entity on the Hawaii islands. Why???
What the lady did was dumb but minor. The 1st story I read said she apologized and was paying a fine. I saw the video of the TV guy harassing a seal. He should be prosecuted to full extent.
