Saving the Manatee

Fort Myers Beach, FL, United States

Flag
Sometimes manatees have an awful sense of direction. When all this little guy wanted was to do was enjoy yet another day of frolicking in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico and doing its best to avoid making contact with whirling boat props, he (I think it was a he, it MUST have been a he, for boys for sure never would ask for directions) found himself in trouble. But luckily for this one, the manatee rescue squad came to his aid. It took several hours to catch him and load him onto a stretcher where he was taken in for a checkup and hopefully someone provided him with a map of the area.
