Sad to hear about the injuries, but let's hope they'll be able to get him "back on track"

Noted... glad to hear they were finally able to get the manatee the help it needed. It's a darned shame they have to be injured by boat propellers!

in Florida-- the boat propellers slice across their backs as they feed on vegetation at the surface.
