Mother of beach-dwelling monk seal pup swims away:
A Hawaiian monk seal pup named Kaimana that was born on a Waikiki beach and made his way three times into the Waikiki Natatorium War Memorial has been left by his mother. That has led officials to think that the pup is weaned and could be relocated in a few days. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports officials have had plans to relocate the pup to an undisclosed Oahu location after being weaned by his mother, named Rocky. She swam away from the pup Friday.
