HONOLULU — A Hawaii man was arrested Thursday after video allegedly showing him beating an endangered and pregnant Hawaiian monk seal went viral.
Shylo Akuna, 19, of Eleele, Kauai, was charged under federal law with harassing the seal after an investigation by the Hawaii Department of Land And Natural Resources, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Kauai Police Department. Authorities said eyewitness accounts and videos led them to the suspect.
The violent encounter occurred Tuesday evening at Salt Pond Beach Park on the island of Kauai. Bystanders took video of a man brutally punching and slapping the monk seal and notified police. By the time officers arrived, the suspect was gone.
Akuna faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $50,000 if convicted of harassing the monk seal, which is protected under the Endangered Species Act.
