Deadliest year on record for sea cows

With two months to go in the year, 2013 is already the deadliest year on record for manatees in Florida.
 
Officials from Save the Manatee Club say 769 manatees have died so far since January, surpassing the mark of 766 set in 2010 when hundreds died from cold stress.

The total this year is almost twice the 392 that died in 2012, according to the conservation group.
