Unfortunately, my manatee story doesn’t have a happy ending, as I found out early this morning. Dennis didn’t make it. According to news reports, he died inside the truck that was transporting him to Sea World in Florida…just an hour before getting there. Just an hour. I cannot even imagine how the rescuers feel…devastated undoubtedly doesn’t cover it.
Well, they did the best they could with the meager means at their disposal…there were no military planes available to transport Dennis down to Florida quickly (we can imagine why…)…which might have saved his life. Might have.
