This poor manatee has a bad cut and hematoma on it's backside. The whole area has been hunting for her and her calf for weeks. She showed up at my dock this morning and I was able to get the pictures the wildlife officers have been wanting to see. Hope we can get her some treatment or she may be ok. She was eating eel grass and resting in the shallows.
She gave birth sometime between being at my dock and later in the evening. She was spotted early this morning with a new born calf. The FWC said they had no boat to come out but would send a biologist with a kayak. As the state and feds usually do it was a no show.
