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.
