The Beacon

Mana-free!

It's a happy day for Peace Pec, an 835-pound manatee who was released into the wild after a stint at a manatee hospital in Tampa, Fla.

Peace Pec was found tangled in crab trap line so badly that his left fin had to be amputated. Despite his injury, he is expected to thrive. Happy trails, big guy.

Maybe he'll meet up with the one-finned seal that bit off Buster's hand in Arrested Development.
