Yeah that was pretty cool.  It went down in a friend of mines neighborhood. I wonder if that is the same storm drain that led to that juvi bull shark getting in the Gleason Park pond?

The joys of old SeaWorld...Vilified for somethings and praised for others.

The rescue stuff is great though. It is not easy work by any means and some of the animals come in with some pretty horrific injuries. I was able to spend a few days shadowing in the rehab area (non-medical of course) and some of the work was not an easy go. The pools have false bottoms and the manatees would try to wedge themselves in the space while the floor was lifting up. So you would have to stop and then move the manatee back to the center and hopefully it would not try it again. They are pretty mellow until you try to move them!! Then they become ferocious monsters!!

I love manatees but they are not very bright animals.
