A boat-wounded manatee rescued Feb. 21 from Fanning Springs is in relatively good health and is scheduled to be a candidate for release into the wild in a few weeks, according to representatives from Sea World Orlando.
About a dozen volunteers and team members from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission rescued the mammal after it was noticed that the manatee had a gash on its back and was having trouble breathing. Rescuers took the animal by truck to Sea World for rehabilitation.
