RECORD BREAKING NUMBER OF MANATEES IN CRYSTAL RIVER, FLORIDA

Earlier this week, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service had to shut down access to Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River when an estimated 300 sea cows moved into the area to enjoy the warmer waters. Now, wildlife officials are saying they’ve taken a more complete headcount in the Citrus County area.

That count, according to Bay News 9, added up to 797 manatees, which handily breaks the old record of 657
