It IS a mana"tee", you know

A manatee stuck in a pond at a private golf club in North Palm Beach was rescued today, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported. The 500-pound, six-foot long male accessed the pond by traveling through a culvert system and was in the pond for a day before it was rescued. The mammal showed signs of cold-stress and appeared thin, said FWC spokeswoman Gabriella Ferraro, in a press release. The manatee has been taken to Miami Seaquarium's manatee rehabilitation facility for a check-up. Source

I hope the check up goes well & they are able to release him back to the wild soon.
