Manatees rescued after being trapped in pond

CRYSTAL RIVER, Fl. –Crews in Crystal River, Florida Thursday worked to rescue six manatees trapped in a golf course pond for more than a week.

The group includes two mothers and their calves.

High water from hurricane Hermine allowed the animals to move into the pond, but a blockage prevented them from getting back out.

Authorities said they manatees have been feeding on hydrilla, a nutrient-rich aquatic plant.

Four manatees have been located and three of them rescued as of Thursday morning.
