Manatees’ tale has a happy ending
Water is poured over Creedence the manatee to hydrate her as wildlife experts from the state and Lowry Park Zoo prepare to release her and her calf. Creedence received antibiotics and care for wounds she received when she got tangled in a crab trap line.

Dozens of people gathered around a boat ramp at Cove Cay Golf Club Wednesday morning to watch the release of a manatee and her calf.

The crane tipped as the boom was hoisting the tree and crushed a Honda Civic, 2003 Chevy Venture, 2003 Dodge 2500 van and a 2011 Rockwood trailer. All of the vehicles were owned by neighbors. A neighbor’s home, at 9142 Dream Way also sustained damage to the roof and base, deputies said. PINELLAS COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE
