Rescued manatee dies on trip to Fla.

BOSTON (AP) - October 13, 2008

Chris Cutter of the International Fund for Animal Welfare says the juvenile male manatee died Sunday outside Orlando. The cause of death will be investigated.

The animal wandered into a harbor near Dennis, Mass. Wildlife officials who feared for his health in the chilly water decided to pull him out Saturday.

Manatees are normally found off Florida and Georgia and stop feeding if they get too cold.
