SANIBEL, Fla. -- New video from over the weekend shows a manatee that was found dead in a Sanibel canal.

The video is from San-Cap Aerial in conjunction with the City of Sanibel.

They say the manatee was towed to the Sanibel Boat Ramp on Saturday for pick up by Florida Fish and Wildlife, who already had another dead manatee on their trailer.  That one was found in the Captiva area.

And on Sunday morning, they found a sea turtle dead near the Sanibel Causeway.
