An Antillean Manatee was found injured at Shipstern Lagoon. The manatee, named Khaleesi, is an 8-foot sub-adult female that was recently released into its natural habitat by Wildtracks Rehabilitation Center in Sarteneja Village, Corozal. IT was found at the northern end of the lagoon with a spear injury to its head. An examination of the injury shows that it was caused by a spear commonly used by local fishers. The incident is believed to have happened between April 9 and 10. Khaleesi is currently undergoing treatment and is recovering at the rehab center. The Fisheries Department believes that the manatee was intentionally harmed and so they have denounced this heinous act against a gentle and harmless mammal. The Department is investigating the incident to identify and bring charges to the perpetrators. The Antillean manatee is a critically endangered species.
