Florida manatees caught on video, taken to hospital

The manatee has been caught on camera, taken into an animal hospital and then taken to the hospital, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The footage shows a manateer on the water with a man-sized fish in its mouth.

It appears to be about a month old, and the fish is clearly visible.

The man is seen in the footage being lifted from the water and onto a stretcher.

The manateee was found Thursday in the vicinity of the Florida Keys National Wildlife Refuge in Manatee County, according the FWC.

The agency said in a statement that it will be examining the footage to determine if it’s from a recent incident.
