Memphis Manatee Found Dead
Sadly, the wandering manatee of the Mississippi was found dead, according to latest news:
"A manatee that traveled 720 miles up the Mississippi River to Memphis in October and eluded his would-be rescuers was found dead today on the banks of a lake.
"Police said the manatee was discovered around 1:30 p-m at Lake McKellar, a slackwater lake off the Mississippi River south of Memphis.
"The manatee was first spotted in October in the Wolf River harbor just north of the densely populated downtown area. But the animal disappeared a few days later and wasn't seen again until its body was found today."
