Alot of folks already know about this, but I thought I would update those of you who might not be near or have heard the update on our visiting Manatee we had back in October. He became known as "Memphis Manny", and he caused quite a stir with his unseasonal and strange surprise visit to our increasingly cooler fall waters of the Mississippi River. They had planned to try and safely transport him back home, when he went missing. They were unable somehow to find him in the search, which I found somewhat odd, thinking maybe that they should've tried harder... Weeks passed and nothing, until just the other day, they found his body on the banks of a nearby lake just south of Memphis. Very sad... I feel sorry for the poor soul, and hope that nothing foul was done to him... I guess they're going to investigate and see how he may have died. If anyone is interested, you can Read the story on the discovery of Memphis Manny's body here.
Rest in Peace Manny. :(
