9/7/2014 DB's Dailies: T21M@SB, Aukai&Kainoa@RI, Pohaku@Nanakuli, Kekoa&U'ilani@RR, Rocky@DH,

At 0617 I got a call from Kimo Smith, advising that he was with an animal at the east end of Sandy Beach. When I arrived at 0623 I found and cordoned off T21M. He had last been seen by Diga in Hauula on 9-1-14. After finishing the cordon I began checking him and found a new wound at the left side corner of his mouth with some visible blood stain on the lower lip. On her visit at 0730 Marilyn got a different perspective, looking at his ventral side. She documented more of the wounds on both sides of the mouth, as well as one on his left side, mid body. The wounds appear quite fresh. My first thought for the mouth wounds would be possible fishing line wounds. Tracy will have to make the call. T21M would depart of his own volition at 1016.

 At 1045 I found Kainoa (RN04) & Aukai (RL12) together at Seal Rock Inlet on Rabbit Island. They remained all day.

 At 0637 Team Billand called with the report of Pohaku (RO28) at Nanakuli. She was gone on their 1237 recheck, but hauled out again at 1550, only to depart at 1613, and then return again at 1645. She departed again at 1830.

 At 1156 the Billands advised that Eileen had called with the report of Kekoa (RK72) at the birth beach, and U’ilani (RN36) on another beach at the Reef Runway.

 At 1259 Colleen called to advise that a friend had called her about a seal at Diamond Head. When Colleen got home at 1405 she confirmed that it was Rocky (RH58) just a few doors down from her house. Rocky departed at 1530.
