So the group rolled the creatures onto tarps, dragging them a hundred yards, according to the person who posted the video and pictures online.

In a Facebook post, Michale Sechler said he went to the bay with some friends to check out the phenomenon when they noticed two large objects lying in the mud.

However, bays and canals drained by Hurricane Irma's intense storm system were exactly the threats facing Florida's aquatic wildlife over the weekend, including manatees. Michael Sechler posted that the animals were far too massive to be lifted, so they gave them water.

"We had to do something about it", said Tony Faradini-Campos of Sarasota.

Footage of Tampa Bay showed a vast expanse of exposed sand, with two dogs frolicking in an area that would normally be underwater, local resident Tim Scheu said in a tweet.

►Make it easy to keep up-to-date with more stories like this. Several people tried saving the huge mammals, but they were unable to move them. Now that Irma has passed through Sarasota, the manatees and their rescuers can expect more peaceful seas.

"One wasn't moving, the other was breathing and had water in its eyes". "But between [the manatees] weighing over 500 lbs. and being stranded in nearly mud-like sand, we couldn't make it happen". "They both swam off", Clavijo told FOX 13 about the happy ending to this rescue.
