Doubtful. Seaworld constructed those storm drains to trap helpless wildlife in order to exploit them. "Pavement crew" indeed; is that what they call their kidnappers these days? Can't wait for the documentary.

I'd like for all the Sea World haters to explain exactly what Fish & Wildlife or DNR could have or would have done to rescue and rehabilitate this poor manatee. I'm listening.....

I've been saying for years that SeaWorld, in its various forms and ownership, has done more to raise awareness for marine life than any non-profit ever.
