MIAMI – A group of manatees looking for love are safe after being stranded in a shallow canal in Miami. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino said four or five male manatees were trying to mate with a female in the canal. Pino said the water in the canal may have been too dirty for the sea cows to see through. Wildlife officials managed to coerce all the manatees to swim out of the shallow area on Monday.

Pino said it’s not uncommon to see several manatees in one place during the summer, when mating is most frequent. Last year, ten manatees appeared on the shores of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea to mate.
