Autopsy Demanded on Manatees Death

The manatee on Wednesday morning died, and it is causing outrage in some quarters that the sea mammal was fed lettuce and given gallons of fresh water to drink. Government issued a release to explain that it believed the male juvenile manatee got off its usual course due to the stormy weather and on November 5 and ended up in Grand Turk. The manatee was spotted by workers at the Carnival Cruise center. It was explained that manatees need fresh water to survive, though they also live in sea water. The plan had been to invest $2,000 to fly the manatee to Puerto Rico where a proper rehabilitation facility would have nursed the juvy back to health. But one opinion posted at Speak Your Mind TCI expresses that those who were caring for the manatee may have been out of their depth, I quote now: It appears there may have been lack of qualification and competency to carry out the exercise and, there should be question in the effectiveness and the management thereof. That matter should have required professional health personnel.” Another opinion came in a letter to media, Devon Williams former radio station owner, has written to Greenpeace, summoning the global organization known for its sometimes radically resolute stances on nature and the environment; he wants them involved. Williams sarcastically points out: A mammoth sized rescue was performed, the sea was not safe for the sea creature, he would be much better off in a backyard pool and so he was taken thereto.” Williams added that a map of the territory of the West Indian Sea Cow shows the TCI is a part of the mammal’s home territory and that he believes the juvenile was too young to digest so much lettuce and stand the change in water temperature. Our research shows that Manatees are indeed believed to be able to go as long as a week without fresh water, but that fresh water is a part of their diet….and several sites show manatees enjoying eating lettuce, saying younger manatees love it. There had been a drive to raise that $2,000 with the help of the TCI Reef Foundation. No word on whether an autopsy is indeed planned to determine the cause of death for the animal.

Chiellini bemoans Juves display despite win

first_imgGiorgio Chiellini was unhappy with what he dubbed the worst Juventus performance of the season, after their narrow 2-1 win over Lazio.Juve dominated the first half but failed to muster a single shot before going behind to an Emre Can own goal.However, substitute Joao Cancelo scored the equaliser and then earned the penalty converted by Cristiano Ronaldo for a 2-1 win.Chiellini “For the first hour it was the worst Juventus of the season, then after the goal we found the mental & physical energy to push through. Szczesny kept us in the game & we then were able to overturn the result.” pic.twitter.com/HnsyuB3mBr— Tarek Khatib (@ADP1113) January 27, 2019Report: Chiellini knee surgery a success George Patchias – September 3, 2019 Giorgio Chiellini has had knee surgery and it has been successful.As we brought you earlier at Ronaldo.com, it was believed that the club was…“For 55-60 minutes it was certainly the worst Juventus performance of the season. Paradoxically, after their goal we found the mental energy more than the physical one to turn it around,” Chiellini told Football Italia.“We’ve got players who make the difference. Wojciech Szczesny kept us afloat for an hour, then we managed to fight back and win the game. It has to help us mature, because we have another big game coming up on Wednesday in the Coppa Italia with Atalanta.“We’ll see the real Juventus from February 20, but it’s important to get the results before that too. We knew it would be tough against Lazio, as it always is.“March 3 will be a crucial date, there’s no denying it, and if we reach that with this advantage, it’ll be a great situation.”last_img read more
