ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (970 WFLA)Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute crews this morning rescued a manatee that had been stranded in a St. Petersburg spillway for nearly two weeks.

Around noon, crews pulled the manatee from the spillway, at 27th Avenue South and 38th Street.

The manatee has been stranded at the spillway since May 31, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission outreach coordinator Kelly Richmond, and officials decided Tuesday to trap and rescue the manatee.
